In the eight years or so that I have kept inverts some roaches just havent done well for me. I have ideas why some have not like L. subcincta but others I have no clue. What species havent done well for you? My list is below.

L. subcincta

N. rhombifolia

D. paulinoi

G. oblongonata

D. punctata (used to have trouble but I found the secret now! :P)

L. subcincta

It's funny; my L. verrucosa female produced tons of offspring, but my L. subcincta colony has yet to produce one...

ECTOBIUS PALLIDUS

^^^ I CAN NOT BREED THESE TO SAVE MY LIFE!!!

They are very difficult to maintain when their numbers grow.

They also like to eat a lot which wastes a lot of money.

1kg of chicken feed is not enough for them. They can consume it in less than a week.

If they ran out of food, they cannibalize each other.

Plus people in here are not fond of buying roaches so it's hard to sell them.

Well let's see here.

Periplaneta americana white eye morphs

Periplaneta fuliginosa (hopefully a fluke, zephyr are the rest of yours okay?)

My other colonies are too new to know how they will fair. But so far all 20 some other species are doing well. Some breeding beyond capacity lol.

Fuliginosa are not doing too well here either... Hoping it's just a fluke too. :/

I hope this is a temporary add but my first peppered roach adult died in molt. I feel like this is going to be my giganteus all over again.

Which is another I need to add:

Blaberus giganteus, all of mine died on their final molt. I hope my peppereds don't end up the way, I've been waiting FOREVER for them to mature darnit!
