Hissers are very hardy and can live in a variety of setups. You'll definitely want an enclosure with a latchable/ heavy lid and a 2' petroleum jelly barrier around the top; hissers are good at climbing and are very strong so these will help prevent escaping. 

As for food they should also have access to protein and a bit of calcium; for this I usefish flakes, cat food, and crushed up egg shells. They can eat a wide variety of foods so it's kinda fun to experiment and see what they like. Mine are big fans of apples, bananas, and bell peppers.

Crushed up eggshells, that's a good idea. I'll have to try that, thanks for the advice! =)

I didn't know they would eat egg shells!  I'm going to try that.

Neither did I! I give eggshells to my isopods, I read they need calcium. I'll start giving egg shells to my roaches too.
