Lobster roach (N. Cinerea) breeding question... From a first time roach keeper.


Recommended Posts

Okay, just give it to me straight... Am I facilitating a plague - of biblical proportions - by breeding N. Cinerea? These things appear to be reproducing at an absolutely scary rate. I'm starting to worry about them eventually overflowing the 18 gallon bin they're in! :)

Well they will probably fill that tub, I'll tell you that much. :lol: They shouldn't outgrow the tub though, and if you are concerned you could always remove the heating elements to slow down the breeding.

They'll breed to a capacity and then likely have a large die off if crowding becomes a big issue. If nothing else and you want to slow them down you can also sell them. Lobsters are always in demand because they make such a great feeder.
