Domino nymph died for no apparent reason.


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm new to roach keeping and one of my little Domino nymphs died for no apparent reason. It looked like it had a small amount of prolapse before it died. I keep them at room temperature, they have coconut husk and oak leaves and a water sponge and a food dish with a steady supply of fruits and veggies. I did try to get them to drink water the other day and a few passed out and then revived because they must have gotten water in their spiracles. Does anyone else have experience with them? Thanks for your replies!

As long as the lower layers of the substrate or half of the enclosure is kept moist, then lack of water shouldn't be an issue. I'm guessing it was just a fluke TBH. Unless more start dying, I don't think there's much of a cause for concern, just some bad luck.
