Zephyr Posted August 24, 2008 Share Posted August 24, 2008 I've decided I'm going to take the plunge into roach heaven with these guys. I'd love to just ask questions, but I'd rather post what my setup would be like and have some critiquing from there. 10 gallon aquarium with 4 inches of potting soil and sphagnum moss in a 3/1 ratio with some dead hardwood leaves (part oak, part what I believe to be silver maple in a 4/1 ratio) above the potting soil. Humidity around 60% I believe but I'm not sure. I'm going to mount a hygrometer/thermometer to check the temps. I don't plan on using supplemental heating; our house is usually around 74-77 degrees fahrenheit. I'll be supplementing with generic dog food; I don't think there are any color enhancers in it. Will they need fresh fruit/veggies? I was thinking about throwing some aspen into the substrate mix; is this necessary? Do they need standing drinking water/crystals? Also, how long til I start seeing bebies? Note I haven't gotten them yet. lol Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
