jebbewocky Posted September 20, 2013 Share Posted September 20, 2013 I'm sure this topic has been brought up before, but it's been awhile and I figured it'd be worth bringing up new. I've tested a few different communal colonies. Specifically: 1.) B.giganteus/H.tenebricosa: Successful in terms of production, however, eventually overcrowding with the giganteus leads to wing deformities. I didn't notice a particularly high death rate, and I suspect a larger tank with more vertical spaces and a deeper substate for H.tenebricosa would fix the issue. 2.) E.distanti/B.craniifer: I lost most of the B.craniifer. Never found them, I assume they were eaten by the E.distanti. 3.) G.portentosa/B.craniifer: Much better, most successful communal so far. I'm actually going to have to start culling. 4.) G.portentosa/B.giganteus/H.tenebricosa: Limited success. The G.portentosa wouldn't breed until I moved them out. I suspect their numbers were too small to keep up with the other two species. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
