Good morning, roach forum! Greetings from the Midwest! I raise my roach, Cornelius, as a pet. He's in a 3 gallon tank, with about 1 1/2" of coconut fiber, and a large piece of bark for him to hide under and climb on. I got him from the local University, which has a very large "Insect Zoo", and they were selling Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches for $5, which, according to google, is 3.22 English Pounds (For you awesome international freak people dudes out there.) Anyhow, yeah. When I got him, he was in a little cup thing. I'll try to get a picture up! So, I've joined the forums because apparently there's an entire community for roaches. I'd not the slightest idea many people kept them. The worst part, though, is everyone think's I'm gross because I keep a roach - I'm fighting the stereotype! I remind people that there are over 3,500 species of roach, only 25 of which are known to cause problems.
