Matt K Posted January 28, 2008 Share Posted January 28, 2008 It seems to me that people who get into the roach hobby are always wanting to buy a new species in groups of 50 or 100. What ever happend to buying a couple pairs or a dozen and trying to grow and establish a colony that way? Is it a need for instand (and fleeting) gratification? Part of the hobby is to see if you can successfully culture a species, and to me that means starting with a few nymphs and growing them into hundreds. Buying too many at once leaves you with just maintaining a colony and leaves little to the challenge and fun of it all. Most of mine started from 3 to 10 specimens of a species and cultured them into a full colony. Now I realize that there are people who buy a half dozen hissers, or a couple dozen of somethng, and culture them into a colony... but I can't tell if thats the common way or not...it seem not from what I can gather.
