  1. You could also add more ventilation to their enclosure, might lower the humidity enough to where the eggcrates don't get too nasty for you.
  2. Well whatever you put these in, be sure it has a tight lid and small ventilation holes, as all life stages of African bullets climb well.
  3. They'd definitely chew on the styrofoam, and I feel like that'd be bad for them...
  4. Congratulations! 😁 They are quite a prolific species, there's more where those came from!
  5. Yeah I'd definitely keep them separate, the roaches would probably crowd the tank too much for the isopods and pedes, and also prefer warmer temps for breeding than most millipedes like.
  6. I kept mine in a gallon container, with limited ventilation and high humidity, and they bred like pests... 😂 Very tolerant of a wide variety of conditions apparently.
  7. I believe tarsalis are quite similar in care to magnifica, yes, but I'm unsure about their specific humidity requirements. I'd just recommend keeping half their enclosure humid, the other half dry.
  8. Hemiblabera tenebricosa are incredibly easy to breed, they'll reproduce at room temperature (68-70F° for most people I think), though they will of course breed faster at warmer temps. Keep them a tub with a deep, humid substrate, feed them normal roach foods, and that's about it. Opisthoplatia orientalis are also supposedly rather easy, just keep them consistently humid, offer fruits regularly, and try not to let the enclosure get too filthy or overcrowded. Keep them warm, 75F° or warmer, for optimal breeding. Decoralampra are a bit finicky, they also like a consistently humid and w
  9. You can just use plain coconut fiber for them TBH, or coco fiber mixed with a little sand.
  10. Well hopefully they'll start making babies soon, any chance they need seasonal cues of some sort?
  11. No problem, hopefully that helped them out a bit! Though if it's truly a fungal infection, it'd likely come back... And no, springtails wouldn't help much with keeping the roaches clean, just the substrate itself.
  12. You have any clearer pictures? Kinda hard for me to see, but besides something fungal, the only other option would be grain mites sticking to your hisser in their hyposus stage, but it doesn't look like grain mites to me in those two pictures... As for removal, I'm really not sure what to do, have never had this type of fungal infections in my hissers before. If you wanna introduce commensal mites to them, all you'd have to do is buy hissers from someone who's got those mites in their colonies.
  13. Unless those are grain mites in their hyposus stage, I'm not sure what that stuff is, almost looks fungal... The commensal mites hissers often come with would probably help with that.
  14. Added Elliptorhina cf. coquereliana, a species that's apparently been in the hobby for a little while now, but people are just now starting to post about them in some of the roach groups...
  15. If all the people who got scammed or ripped off by Kyle left reviews on him here, you'd realize how poor a vendor he's actually been these past few years... He'll make a few good sales every now and then, which has been enough to keep him afloat, but he's been essentially blacklisted from most of the roach communities ATM...
  16. There's a big discussion going about this on FB... Even if Kyle renews the website, he is essentially done for in Blatticulture, his once immaculate reputation is now in tatters, he has not been fit to run a business, or even care for his animals adequately in the past few years. He's neglected many of his species to death, including some colonies that were the last of their kind in the US. Sad, but true. The quality of animals he's been sending out as of late has gotten worse and worse as well. I for one am done with hoping for a "glorious return" from Roachcrossing, those days are good
  17. No problem! I've also noticed that when Surinam roach colonies get overcrowded, they do produce a lot of heat, and many individuals often die due to the overcrowding and rot, so that could have been an issue as well, if you have hundreds of them in there.
  18. I'd increase ventilation while they're recovering, I've never had this issue personally, may have been due to the specific type of food you were using?
  19. So far no problems like beetle forum had for me!
  20. Could have sworn I saw someone on Facebook trying to isolate this very morph, don't know what happened with them... 🤔
  21. Good to know, I'll be keeping an eye out for this feature... I only have one male in this starter group, so even if he looks good, probably won't be able to see if the scoop shape is consistent in this bloodline until the next generation.
  22. Shelfordella lateralis, adult female.
  23. She's matured, looking pretty pure to me, fingers crossed her siblings come out looking much the same! 😁
  24. They've started maturing! 😁 Females: Pair: Male:
