  1. wow I would be so sad if I had to secretly keep my roaches like little marijuana plants : P
  2. and I thought waiting for peppers was a while...a few years for babies...I would be rediculously stoked when I came across some nymphs
  3. I've just never seen the point of mixing species......but I'm old school yo : P
  4. only 175 for one : P ... hmmm *saves up swap money*
  5. who has some Macropanesthia rhinoceros ...they are so so so sexy ... The only place I've found them for sale....they have only males
  6. go to the paper plate section @ any super market they should have tiny plastic souffle cups...idk how the hell you spell it : P or go to the tupperwear storage.....section and get little condimentish cups and use Polymer crystals ....I've never had a drowing issue
  7. If your selling them with a disclaimer claiming they are for educational purposes then I do believe it's still legal.....They are trying to take away that privilege . So much for education hahahaha. I will get the finer details at the next swap! I shall measure that boy today. I do believe that pair just had their first batch of nymphs <3
  8. .......I neglected a dubia colony for a few months and I still have that same colony years later ; ) SCIENCE.... I think they will be fine lol
  9. Damn, I hope I never see this. I love my peppers! Hope it doesn't keep happening and you figure out what it is so we all know what's up : )
  10. I love good scores @ swaps <3 I wonder if I blow anybodies mind with my prices... I hope so <3
  11. You released one of your roaches into the wilderness...big no no lol
  12. yup clear packing tape....as you can see they are all haulted at the start of it lol. Then there is a layer of vaseline above that. It helps emensly .... but those little fucks tend to escape still every now and then.
  13. Since I am at a reptile expo every month I have egg flats on tap : ) for display I wouldn't use them but for selling purposes...so easy to take out your flats shake...scoop up roaches ahhhh easy . Sequins sound AWESOME! I must seeeee this! DISCOOOOO ROOOOACHHHH
  14. got a few new species recently from Kyle <3. fusca - dusky cave roach B.cabrerai - striped burrowing roach Panchlora sp. - giant banana roach A.insignis - flat horn hisser pairI lol *runs to room with sweet pepper bag*. My Tesselata's are doing great! After adjusting the husbandry a bit they are molting into robust vibrant adults with lovely wings. Waiting for two nymphs to grow into a big sweet colony is slow and exciting! I would def reccomend. The new roaches arived and I come to a realization that I'm a space case and had nothing ready. *runs to walmart,busts out rotozip,glue gun,screen,scissors,vasaline,egg flats,mulch,moss* Hmmmm remember you can always ad shelves : P Portentosa nymphs! G.Oblongata! He's a big boy. Picked up a tegu *Bundy* Hanging out at the Expo with my Son . Not vending this show just visiting.....little ones can't resist tiny turtles. It will be a shame if they actually suscesfully ban selling these profitable gems!
  15. I did rotting carrots yesterday. They loved it! I almost did rotting cucumber. I always google anything I'm iffy about and ask fellow roach gurus. I'm happy I did! Turns out cucumber isn't very yummy to roaches I guess.
  16. I was thinking of trying out a clean up crew
  17. Thus far I've had luck with vasaline ... clear tape and I duct tape the holes or glue gun them .....
  18. I found some soil mites in my Tessslllaaaatttaaa ..peppered roaches lol! I switched them to soil and I think that they love it but HOLY CRAP the mites are ridiculous . Def far to much humidity . I was having an issue with them being to dry and wings being not so lovely. Lately I've had lovely wings and lots of babies but now I have these mites. It's going to be a pain in the ass taking all the babies out of the substrate.
  19. <3 Ugh no matter how I explain my roach..science...love to most.....they seem to be not okay with it hahaha! Any who my first attempt with dominos didn't go so well. That was YEARS ago. I think I will re-try : ) .
  20. I'm such a nazi about keeping mine seperated ....have yet to consider hybridization ......
  21. I hope some ivories are available soon. I love the clean up skills of my portentosas . I will put a ton of food remnants in their container and they will devour it oh so quickly.
  22. I don't think the species that you use matters I dont even own any ivorys I use mainly my portentosa's and other big colonies that I have : )
  23. I have a metro rack so there is open space between everything. I wouldn't reccomend using any sort of heat mechanism with a regular book shelf or any kind of enclosed rack system. Seems that is where fires erupt lol. I have a run of heat tape through the whole thing. On some of my species and snakes and such that need more heat I use zoo med heat pads. They are in rubber maid plastic tubs and other various types of plastic tubs......always keep an eye on that crap
