ScottK Posted February 7, 2009 Share Posted February 7, 2009 Hey all- I'm new to the forum and was looking for some help. I have an extensive tarantula collection, and have been raising several species of feeder roaches for a couple of years now. I'm starting to get very interested in roaches, and have just acquired a dozen large Gromphadorhina grandidieri (Tiger Hissers). I currently have them in a ten gallon tank with a basic bare bottom setup, similar to how you'd keep feeders. I want to do something more naturalistic and comfortable for them, as these will be my first "pet" species. I don't need "roach 101" LOL. I have all of the basics down, plenty of supplies, and all of my feeder colonies are thriving. What I am looking for is more along the lines of: 1- Substrate and decor recommendations to make a nice home that will look good and facilitate long lives and breeding. Info on humidity levels, misting substrate and if they are a species that would appreciate some rotted wood etc... 2- Specific foods that this species might appreciate. 3- Pics or descriptions of successful setups would be great. Thanks in advance, Scott PS- Here is a pic of one. They are real beauties! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
