I'm just getting into roaches, and decided to start a colony of B. dubia and P.nivea. I got a (probably overly large) waterproof rubbermaid tye container for my future P. nivea colony. They are so pretty, and I'm so into naturalistic terrariums, that I was thinking once my colony got going housing some of them in a display tank would make a great display. This leads to a few questions: 1. (The most important question!) How on earth do you make a 5 or 10 gallon tank escape proof when you are dealing with such small roaches? 2. What kind of plants would you recommend? I realize roaches eat just about anything, but there have to be some stronger plants that can stand up to them (sanseviera?). Also perhaps some plants that are safe but grow fast? I have a green thumb, and usually have "too many" houseplants, so if they were nibbled on and grew fast, I could usually be replacing it. 3. What kind of companions may be good with them? I'm thinking they would be big enough to freak out most dart frogs, though they would help with potentially escaping tiny nymphs. I'm willing to entertain most any suggestion. If the suggestion were to be another roach, I would want a slow breeder, and one that could also be fed to lizards/frogs if their numbers were getting too high (or could be sold off to enthusiasts). Thanks, in advance, for all your help!
Just wondered what shows people no about, and where? The only one I found near me is the his show in Doncaster, Yorkshire. There's one in June If I can I'll go. Perhaps if I turn it into a social thing and don't explain I'm going to hopefully get more roaches, I might be in with a chance of not being escorted by family lol. Don't no anyone round here who'd be interested though
