First time user here! I have two male hissers, one of which I just got. As of this morning, they've both been acting strange -- they're very weak, they have a really hard time crawling, their legs seem to be splayed out at awkward angels, and sometimes their abdomens seem to be heaving. It seems to me like they've both been poisoned, and I'm not sure what caused it? Perhaps insecticides are the cause and I should have rinsed their food off more thoroughly, but I've never had a problem with that before. While I was picking up the new hisser, I also got some new driftwood, repti safe dechlorinator, and repti calcium for them, I don't know if that might be the culprit either? I poured boiling water on the driftwood to disinfect it and the person at the store said the repti safe and repti calcium should be fine for invertebrates, but I can't seem to find much on the subject online. I'd really appreciate any insight onto whats going on or advice on how to proceed, I'm quite fond of these guys and I'd really like them to pull through.
I have 10 females and 1 male hissing cockroaches. I have this one cockroach (female) that always stays as close as possible to the light, reacts weird to the touch with a nervous fast movement almost like shaking as it walks. I noticed she’s missing part of one of her mid legs and she has a lot of trouble climbing objects, for that reason I find her laying on her back most of the time not being able to turn back to her feet. Is there a chance she could be sick? Or else? 62252309353__4D59AC99-4ED3-4347-842E-2354970550D8.MOV
