Roachman26 Posted January 13, 2010 Share Posted January 13, 2010 Had an idea. Would it be possible and/or beneficial to have some of our senior members that have extensive experience and success with individual species, do a brief write up for each one? I envision this as sort of a "care sheet" for each species. They could be open for a bit of debate or differing opinions and then "pinned". I know some of you old timers don't want the lime-light or possible controversy, but I've got a list of another 17 species that I'm really interested in, but I really don't know much about them. "Allpet Roaches" is great, but it is meant to be a quick reference guide and doesn't go into too much detail about each individual species and their particular care requirements. For example, one of our most experienced members, recently PM'ed me about possibly using smaller containers for some species in some situations. It was very useful info for me, and something I might not have figured out on my own if I did this for ten years. Another example: Me and Kevin have both recently posted questions about Eurycotis decipiens. It seems like a really great species, but I've been having trouble finding out much about the real "nuts and bolts" of it. I've resorted to just buying some and seeing for myself. I'd love to have a reference for things like how much heat/humidity, how much/what kind of substrate, what size and type of container, do they like overcrowding or not?, etc... Of course we all pick up tid bits here and there, but I'd love to have a centralized area to look up a particular species. I'll volunteer to do G. portentosa. Its the only one I have any real experience with. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
