Betta132 Posted April 2, 2019 Share Posted April 2, 2019 I'm looking for a new roach species to keep. I have dominoes and peppered roaches, plus a couple of death's head males in with the peppereds. What I'm looking for is a species that: Doesn't tend to be good at escaping (can't climb glass, can't or at least doesn't tend to fly straight upward) I could keep a decent colony of in a 2.5 or 5 gallon aquarium Will breed and behave normally in low 70-high 60 temps (my room is cold and I don't want to have yet another thing plugged in to keep them warm) Can basically be ignored aside from putting some food in once a week I have a backyard full of pecan leaves, so have easy access to hardwood leaves. We have cats, so I have cat food on hand. I also eat apples pretty frequently, and my bugs get the cores. Does anyone have any suggestions? I love the gyna species, but they're all far too escape-prone. I especially like wider or rounder roaches. The burrowing species are charming, but hard to watch- I'd prefer a species that's a little more surface-active, or at least can generally be found hiding under bark at the surface instead of being buried. I kinda like Arizona sand roaches. How does one keep those? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
