Here are a few images I took of one of my Parcoblatta bolliana nymphs (They are not nearly as good as Cariblatta's pics):

Here is their setup (Which is shared by my Pycnoscelus nigra nymphs):

Nice specimens :)

You'd probably want to separate them from Pycnoscelus asap cause eventually they'll outcompete your bolliana.

Thanks! :)

I only have 3 P.nigra nymphs, and they are all still small. Once those start breeding I will definitely be moving the bolliana, I just moved them to this enclosure because they were doing horribly in their other, much smaller setup.

One of my females has matured!! These guys are doing much better now, I made some changes to the substrate and now they are thriving!

There are two subadult males in the enclosure as well, so it looks like she will have someone to mate with soon! :D

Well, this species has been wiped out of my collection, which really sucks. :( My last remaining female died today, she was infected with the fungus.

Yeah, hopefully I'll be able to get some more later this year, this time captive bred, uninfected stock.

Oh no! Sorry to hear :(

Hopefully I'll have some CB stock available soon

Yeah I was expecting her to die, I'm actually very surprised my C.lutea are still alive. Hopefully the fungus stops with those species!
