  1. (Sorry I hit post by accident) Of course, plants. There might also be aborial geckos... Could a roach potentially live in this, and look appealing and come out during the day? Nothing would eat adult roaches, and the biggest threat would be the water. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi everyone, I am thinking about setting up a riparium (half water, half land). However, I am going to make a false wall, and a shelf with soil, and ontop of that will be soil and
  3. I was thinking of that, and their ease of production. Maybe lobsters would be better though... Although I was considering laboratory strains of American roaches as decent meals because they reproduce so quickly, but they would be unmarketable and because of their prickly legs.
  4. Hi all, One interesting hung about me is I believe that us Americans should include insects as part of our diets. As you all probably know, insects: Are higher sources of protein than other food sources Are better for the environment Take up less space Are easy to propagate So what species could potentially be used? Out of the roaches, I think blatta lateralis would be best, followed by black soldier fly larvae ( which I believe would be best, and are amazing decomposes) and mealworms (chiten is fiber, people!). What do you all think?
  5. Interesting. What sort of things can thy do? Make stick insects and giant land snails legal!
  6. I got these kinds of responses: I have some Pycnoscelus surinamensis in my crested gecko tanks. They produce really fast and are a pain the the ass. They do not leave the substrate so the geckos cant eat them. They will flock to water features and drown I kill tons of babies with a small cup of water. The roaches don't bother the geckos or the gecko eggs unless they are bad or the gecko has left the egg. This is by far the most intelligent forum I have ever been a part of. On that note, I quote Ian Malcolm, "Life will find a way." By that statement I mean that it is very difficult to keep sp
  7. Yeah it will certainly be hard, especially because the mourning geckos will eat mostly fruit with the occational roach. Do you think that they will eat all of the plants? I'm thinking about a stream dividing the two species of roaches. Would they be able to cross via branches or the false bottom/background? Also do both species of roach reproduce at the same rate? They would drown/stay long enough to be eaten in the water feature, right?
  8. Hi everyone! So I came up with a new concept viv, dart frog style. It will be a Paludarium, with the water section connected to the false bottom (egg crate method). I am planning to, of course, seed it with some sick exotic plants... I hope this might not be a problem. On land: Mourning geckos Pycnoscelus surinamensis (feeder/cleanup/cool inhabitant) P nigra (same as above) In water: Marbled crayfish Mts (food source, will help irrigate, cleanup) I was thinking about adding a few more all female species.. But I dunno. Any suggestions? Can this work?
  9. Can these two species cross? I wa A thinking of including some inverts in a display tank with my mourning geckos and they seem to be perfect. Can I include them both without risk of hybrids? Otherwise i might replace E. chopardi with of some Gromphadorhina. Any thoughts? Also, do you think that I would have a problem with the roaches munching on the gecko's eggs/baby geckos? Would the roaches would be fine on a diet of fruit meal, live plants (unfortunately but I realize that they will get eaten), possibly the occasional cricket, and gecko poop?
  10. Pycnoscelus surinamensis is the only species with the common name "Surinam Roach". Care for all pycnoscelus seems to be the same.. A quick google search should reveal much about them. They are too small for dragons, though. And they burrow like crazy.
  11. Hi all. So, my search for dubia has helped me find this guy. He has an entire colony of thousands for sale. What is a fair price?
  12. Great looking panthers! The one in the second picture looks very well fed
