Lets talk about Pepper Roaches in General Blattodea Discussions Posted May 23, 2013 I've have these pepper roach colony up and going for a few months now. I set their 55 gallon container setup exactly like the Giant Cave Roaches , ie a lot of verticles cork bark and an inch of substrate. I've noticed, unlike the Giant Cave Roaches, the Pepper Roaches to not use these verticle corkbark but almost all of them are found on or under the substrate. Ive now rearranged the Pepper Roach container to where there's two large verticle cork bark and I added more rotten leaves and alittle more substrate. Has anyone ever found these in the field? If so, are these always found terrestrial in the leaf litter? are they eating rotten fruits and fungi ? I've noticed my Pepper roach colony also isn't as fond of oranges , dog/cat food , fish flakes , spirulina flakes as much as my other roach colonies are.... Perhaps they don't have as large as an appetite ? I noticed my discoides roaches eat a lot but my giant caves do not have a large appetite. Any pointers on anyone keeping these sexy fun roaches , PLS chime in !!! Esp with husbandry and diet .... thank you !!!!
