  8. Well...I wish I could contribute this week but I currently do not have this species. I am hoping for some good info though, knowing I will in the future....If Zepher is the only "contestant" I wonder what next weeks will be..... Matt, surely you have them...How about a little input, and maybe some pics. buddylee79
  9. Hey thanks...I will give them a try, and keep you posted on my success....if any buddylee79
  10. How does one keep them? I have never kept crickets of any kind, so any advice is appreciated.
  11. I do indeed...I was quite surprised but in a oh cool a new pet sort of a way....I'm sure I will be seeing more...If I can catch a bunch...would you want them? buddylee79
  12. Very nice...I just moved today into my new place and there are cave crickets in the basement....I had never seen them before...
  13. I have not...but I will separate a few of the more colorful ones into a new enclosure and we will see what happens.....
  14. Indeed they are. The top one has been its whole life and is an offspring of the one female in my "My Girls" thread, and the bottom one is a new member to the "orange" colony.
  15. How about foods..... I feed my dubias mostly carrots, sweet potatoes, and papaya for the fruits and veggies with the occasional strawberry and banana. For the dry food portion, I am lucky enough to have a near endless supply of Wellness cat/dog food. I am trying with some of the more orange ones a diet high in beta carotene. For this I merely added some red palm oil to the dry food. The carotene content of red palm oil is above 500 mg/kg. I am no chemist but its worth a try...
  16. That sounds about how mine are kept. I use your standard tub setup with egg crate. My roaches are all kept in a "roach closet" with a fan and small heater(when needed) keeping them at a nice 80F. It stays fairly humid avoiding constant misting, but the winters are DRY... so I added substrate last winter to help hold humidity, but removed this spring because It was staying way to humid.
