Bugboy3092 Posted April 16, 2018 Share Posted April 16, 2018 Ok, so I recently (yesterday) got myself a small colony (10 older roaches, one gave birth while in shipping) of horseshoe roaches (H. Tenebricosa) and I have to say that this may be my favorite species (I didn’t quite expect them to be so large haha). Anyways, I really want to make sure this colony succeeds, I’m pretty sure I’ve got their setup right (approx. 4 inches substrate of coco fiber, compost (mainly as a filler, has worked very well in my setups) and mainly decaying oak leaves. I’m assuming they’ll basically have the same diet as most other live bearers? Also, I’d very much appreciate an approximate lifespan and time-til-maturity. Is room temperature ok for them? I’ve read multiple opinions on substrate moisture, so I’ve decided to play it safe and give them a moist substrate, is this ok? Any help is greatly appreciated, as please please correct me if I’m wrong on anything here. Thanks! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
