Hi all, been thinking about moving my cultures of G. caffrorum and G. centurio to a large planted vivarium, but I'd like to keep the two cultures pure. Does anyone know if there's any information on the possibility of hybridization between the two? I've been unable to find much of anything. Thanks!
I've recently obtained pure strains of these MHC species (G. portentosa, G. grandidieri white tiger, P. vanwaerebeki) and plan to obtain (G. oblongonota, E. javanica). My question is: Which of these species can safely be housed together without there being any possibility of hybridization OR harm to adults or nymphs? I already read that the Princisia Giants will hybridize but what about the others?
Hello there friends! ? I use to mix different species (...that apparently could live together —similar environmental necessities, non-aggressive behaviour & the most important, no possibilities of hybridisation) This time was Phortioeca phoraspoides & Elliptorhina chopardi... and well, they couldn't be doing better. Actually, I would say that the group of P.phoraspoides living with E.chopardi are doing better than the group with their own cage. Which made me understand finally the better way to keep these very hardy flat-roache's species ? ...keep them dry, ventilated but with a good source of juicy veggies. That was a surprise... because they have some moisture around in their habitat. But wouldn't be the first time that one of my species do better in captivity when kept a little dryer than in their habitat. Cheers! ?
