  1. The nymps of the tesselatas hide the most of the time but the adults are to big and beautiful to hide :-) Ones they have wings(that they don't use) they become more visible.
  2. Belgium isn't tropical at all... :-)
  3. It tasts like banana :-) Maybe I can give it together with other food so they eat it without knowing :-)
  4. Hey everybody, Just a litle info about my self.Im 26 and my hobby's are fitness and a little bodybuilding... Bodybuilders are know for their high-proteine high carbs dieets Everywere you read about giving roaches dog or cat food for the proteines. Now my question is What kind of proteines do they need because I have here a bucket of high quality whey-proteine I don't like the taste of so I thought maybe good for my roaches...It contains alot of branched chained amino acids. 100gr of this powder contains 84gr proteins...
  5. Why not archimandrita tesselata? They are HUGE and rather slow breeders but so beautiful!
  6. My favorite feeder is B.dubia.They breed like hell. But my best breeding colonie must be G.portentosa.I started about a year ago with 20 of them and now i have started 3 new colonies. My all-time favorite feeder must be b.craniifer.They are simmular to b.dubia in housing and breeding speed but alot bigger.
  7. How fast is fast breeding? I'm going to order a bunch of sub-adults (about 20-30) Is that enough to get me starting? Are they a possible plage?
  8. I have also tried babyfood and all my roaches whent nuts for fruit mash (compote).I dont know how you say it in english but I hope everybody understands it. I have also tried babyfood but that's not a good idea...It became hard and the litle roaches got stuck in them...
  9. Here is the result of my little test: they didn't liked anything!I had to trow away everything... Why I don't know. A bit dissapointing isn't it?
  10. I keep them at 85°F... Do you think I keep them to warm?
  11. My dubia roaches are rather small in size now... They are only 3cm long and 1cm wide.They used to be bigger; Does anybody know why and what i can do to enlarge them? I feed them dog food , bread, baby food(powder) and all kinds of vegetables and oranges. I keep them rather warm because I have found that they reproduce faster. hope to finds answers.... Thanks
  12. Hey, here's an update... I have bought 2 new species 2.8.4 archimandrita tesselata 4.15.0 Gromphadorhina portentosa I am searching now for the Panchlora nivea to use them as a feeder.I think my dragons would like the flyers!
  13. I used oatmeal ,dogfood and milkpowder as a base for all the places. I used always vegtables for watersource(there is still a piece of orange in the container).I have read about the cricket gel wich I bought for my spider but didn't use because he/she don't likes it. On the bottom of the container lays old bread crum but just a thin layer I'm going to take pictures so everybody can follow the changes. On this way I can test and improve my roach food before I'm going to expand my collection roaches.
  14. I just started a litle project... I took an egg-container and in each place i putted another mix of food in it. The base of the food is evrywhere the same but there's an extra ingredient or combination of ingredients in each place. Place 1 : dogfood milkpowder and oakmeal place 2 :dust from flowers(dont know the english name) and the base from place 1 place 3 : vitamineral (calcium for birds) and the base from place 1 place 4 : a combination from place 2 and 3 and the base from place 1 place 5 and 6: cricket gel(first time use for me) here is a before picture so a litle poll is posible to see wich is the favorite one... What do you think will turn out as the most popular for my roaches??? If someone has a sugestion to make my mixture even better im very intrestet greetings Rob
  15. Hey, I got my first hissers already It are princisia vanwaerebeki.I only got 2 but i hope i will have nymps very soon so i can keep the population big enough.... My girlfriend almost killed me when she saw them... greetings Rob
  16. I think it are real craniifer but i'm not sure.
  17. I will make a photo one of these days of my roaches... I'm hoping to find the The Madagascar hissing cockroach soon and to bred with them. I have found also a pet store who want to buy some roaches from me to sel them in there store! cool isn't it???
  18. Hello to you all; We are couple that loves animals.We have a adult iguana, 6 bearded dragons, 1 greek landtortoise , 1 mexican red-knee tarantula 1 chicken 4 goldfish 2 cats , a colonie of dubias(feeding insects) and a very small colonie of craniifer. I started with roaches with b dubias because my dragons love them and they arent cheap so i try to bred them myself. I googled a lot and my intrest for roaches was born. 2 months ago i was at a fair where they sold craniifer and i just couldn't resist them!They are so intresting. Now I am trying to get my 2 colonies to expand so i can give a few away(many visitors to my house liked them and want to have them to!) Especially the craniifer. I hope can learn here alot about these great animals. greatings Rob and Ann from Hamme , Belgium
