I got 2.3.0 Six-spotted roaches today (along with the 2 redheads and some isopods). I'm hoping they don't stay burrowed all the time now.



This is a good day.

Sweet!

Roaches are fun. I'm excited that at least half of my B. fusca are mature. What a Face

wow congrats on ya new roaches
I've to have an eye on those redheads
don't know too much on other species or latin names on them, but i do know what i like

most people trip out when i tell them i have tarantulas, scorpions, millipedesand and centipedes, but they totally wig out once they heard i have hissers and the dubia and up until today i had discords, i gave the whole colony away to a member on here

i just wish i knew where i can get other types of roaches other then just the typical feeders
like thoses redheads

btw, thismay sounds stupid( but i don't care if it does) what is an Isopod, not even sure if i ever seen one

I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow. They're small and I use a webcam so it isn't easy. They're the typical garden isopods just will an orange color.

Oh! *Slaps forehead* I caught a bunch of those not too long ago. I thought it was a different species or something which is why I wanted to see pics. I love Pill bugs. And Sow bugs too. The only difference in those is that the Sow bugs can't role up into little balls.

And they're flat. Both are cute.

I'm impressed . . . not a lot of people know the difference.

I got them for free for helping out someone on AB. I have no idea the going rate and the guy I got them from is just starting up a colony so I doubt he has any for sale. Sad They aren't particularly interesting though, the are burrowed constantly.

The pillbugs are a small species of millipede. Isopods (sowbugs) are crustaceans, therefore need it extra moist just to breath right. Many people keep them in their tropical tanks since they will eat just about any dead/decaying matter.

What you find under your average rock are also isopods; pill millipedes do exist, but they're much larger and come from tropical climates.

--> Just checked the Wikipedia article; apparently one order of pill millipedes occurs in (among other places) California and Europe, so some keepers may be within their native range.

Oh those are really cool looking! What species are they if you know? And you said that you breed the Giant Canyon Isopods do you have pics because I remember a discussion about them on AB and if I remember correctly some one had said that there isn't much on them. I Googled them and didn't find anything on them that I don't already know.

Also whats the scientific name for this one that may help with search results. I love Pill millipedes and the like. So cute.

You are probably refering to What's (AKA Kevin) he's the one that got them from me. Although I do know where to get them I don't really breed them any more but I can probably get you some. Not to hard to take care of.

So I had a bad salad so I gave most of it to my millipedes and a little bit to my orange isopods. The isopods are going nuts swarming all over the carrots. I've never seen them go crazy for food like that before.
