Elliptorhina Javanica potential?

Recommended Posts

There seems to be a fairly large amount of variation among the species, depending on the source stock, and some of them are entirely brown and orange instead of having any black on them. Looks like it wouldn't be too difficult to start with some of those paler individuals and breed a light orange strain. Pumpkin roaches would be a neat variant of Halloween roaches. Plus, some of the lighter ones already have thin white bands, so it looks like it might be possible to eventually breed a pure white strain. 

Would this theoretically be possible?

I combined Kyle's stock and Capecod roaches red pronotum stock to make specimens that are pale but have bold black and red colors. This is an interesting idea and I may try to breed for some of those traits you mentioned.
