I found my male roach leaning on the wall on his back. I thought he was stuck so I nudged him onto his front. When I did he stayed slightly curled. I think it is very likely he got stuck in his molt. Though he is most likely dead I'd like to know if there is anything i can do to avoid something like this in the future. In the off chance he's not dead is there anything i can do?
I have a 55 gallon tank with a small colony of Hissers. In the last month I have had 3 adult females molt with disastrous results. I know adults do not molt. In the 20+ years I have had Hissers, I have never had this happen. They have a water fountain/pond with screen cover so they don't drown, fresh veges & fruit, medium humidity, and a sand and coconut fiber substrate. Any ideas on what the problem could be?
