PeriplanetaAmericana Posted May 28, 2008 Share Posted May 28, 2008 I buyed an E. opaca colony one year ago. They were 3-4 cm (1inch and a half) long so I saw them growing. In September, they hatched to adults and they started breeding. They lay 10-15 oothecae and some of them gived birth. Now, I have many ninphs and I´m very happy about that. I keep them in a plastic cage with 1 inch and a half dry coco fiber (substrate) with some egg crates. I feed them with apples, oranges and dog food. I used to give them water with this: http://www.dixhigiene.com.br/catalogo/imag...ulverizador.jpg (sorry, I don´t know what is its name in English) three times a week and then, I only put water in this: http://www.codsc.com/plasticosgr/pajaros06.jpg (sorry again). I observed the females and they take some coco fiber to put it on the oothecae. I have a problem: the babies run into the coco fiber and I can´t control them. I think: can I put them in a plastic cage without substrate, only eggcrates, food, drink and a small cage with coco fiber for the females? Thank you very much!
