Hi all, just thought I'd pop in and say Hi.

Well I'm Jake and I live in Scotland.

Just recently left my job and looking for something to fill the gap, so I have decided on roaches.

I already have a small feeder colony of Dubai and a pair of hissers but want more.

I have decided to get the following species;

Hemiblaberus brunneus

Oxyhaloa deusta

Pycnoscelus spec. 'Malaysia'

Pycnoscelus striatus

Schultesia Lampyridiformis

Just really looking for helpful information on keeping the above species so thought I would join here and be nosey.

Also, it seems very hard to get various roach species here in the UK. The main ones available are Dubai, Turkistan and Lobster, so I am ordering mine from Germany.

Thanks and Hi :rolleyes:

Hello and welcome. I have no experience with those species, except the dubia and hissers, but good luck. The germans seem to have a lot of good roaches.

Thanks for the welcome.

IMO the Germans have too many good roaches :P, time to bring German roaches to the UK :P

I like the look of the P. striatus! Have you been to Bugnation.co.uk? I bet those people could get you some new roaches.
