Just a few leafy-looking roaches. :)

Epilampra maya

Rhabdoblatta formosana

Nice, I used to have R.formosana, a very pretty species for sure! :) Too bad they are so dang hard to keep happy long term, gave mine up because I just didn't want to deal with their crap anymore, (metaphorically, and literally! :P).

Yeah, the amount of poop they produce is insane!

Yup, and the dead bodies really stack up after a few months! :( Unfortunately all the clean up crews I tried housing with them besides springtails only made things worse, so you have to pull that stuff out by hand, or else they completely stop breeding...

Yeah I've been making it a habit to change out their substrate every once and a while which was easy when it was just adults. Now I've got a ton of nymphs though and so it's going to get tricky!
