  1. These beetle breeding items are things you never see in the US (we just see the beetle jellies, holders, splitters and a few things) and some like the anti-mite bedding sound a little dangerous. I think the special substrate water is just water? Anybody use the orange gel beads or pellets?
  2. I was looking over my account and I don't see an option which seems strange.
  3. The spermatophore from breeding probably lasts close to a year.
  4. It's like anything else, things get popular for a little while and then everybody gets some and then nobody wants them and then they peter out and then they get popular again when nobody has them. The cycle is problematic for less easy to maintain species but is okay to keep most in perpetuity.
  5. There are a lot of inorganic and organic things they won't eat. However, one thing you can't feed them is slightly overripe coconut meat.
  6. Does he seem fine otherwise? The bottoms of the feet are always white.
  7. This species was one of the very first offerings of unique European isopods in the hobby beginning in 2016. They are neat but not like the ones that later arrived. Anyone still keeping these? Any five-year-old stock around?
  8. Please keep us updated. It would be great to see how the adults look. Very nice looking nymph!
  9. Can they really just eat styrofoam and grow?
  10. They can be as little as 1mm high (dorsoventrally flattened) but many times longer and wider. It's more about leaving a lid open or off on accident.
  11. I say try Blaberus or Eublaberus, hissers are beautiful, especially a massive male oblongonota but they climb and babies can be a pain to enclose, especially in big numbers.
  12. We are a bit late but I think it's one of those fire hazards that is real but almost impossible.
  13. Probably a Periplaneta, smokybrown cockroach.
  14. I usually just stick with apple slices but residual pesticides shouldn't be so high on edible produce. They are mostly nocturnal so only use one large piece of bark and angle the bark against the side of the cage so they can feel they are hiding and you can see them.
  15. The male is an adult, like hissers some are big and impressive, others not so much. The female does not look mature but it is harder to tell.
  16. The gold dalmatian glows green down the stripes and some blue. The only really neat ones are the white micropods but I can't get them to stay still. I don't have a blacklight flash so when they move it looks like a glow in the air. I could try freezing one but this is the most time I'm currently willing to invest.
  17. No, I just never bothered trying to get the UCR strain. It's hard enough trying to keep every bug on earth without trying to keep every strain.
  18. They are pretty easy but not very fast. They like to hide under wood and part of the substrate should always be damp. I think sucincta is less finicky but mostly because they are slower, verrucosa I've had to use as feeders to try to keep the colony from crashing but never subcincta.
  19. What about speckled and white? Speckled or nivea are my suggestion. I have never had the white.
  20. Rebecca77 How are they doing now? They look more than 7-8 months old in that picture unless that leaf is really small.
