    Nightmare situation...

    So I killed off most of my roaches because the 3-5 thousand were a nuisance. A few weeks ago my boyfriend told me no more roaches...

    I found a small container I had housed a few nymphs in and forgotten about. I had what I thought were 3 immature B giganteus hybrids (bred for size and reproduction rate) left in there. Sadly two molted out as female dubias and the third as the hybrid.

    Now I'm extremely interested in roaches again but want to do it on a smaller scale. He won't lift the ban for even hissers or ornamental species! Grr....

    I think eventually I'll break him. I have a ridiculous wish list right now. It includes some feeder species but I don't want colonies. I want like 2.3.0 in a small tupperware. The babies can be fed off easily.

    Archimandrita tesselata
    Blaberus craniifer
    B. discoidalis
    B. fusca
    B. giganteus
    Blaptica dubia
    Blatta lateralis
    Elliptorhina sp.
    Gromphadorhina grandidieri
    G. oblongonota
    G. portentosa
    Gyna lurida
    Hormentica subcincta
    Nauphoeta cinerea
    Panchlora nivea
    Therea granjeani
    T. petiveriana

    I've been persuasive and got 'if it's small scale, only a couple, and not feeders, maybe'. Better than nothing.

    Hahaha, nice.

    I have to say, 98% of those species I've never heard of. You'll have to post pics once you acquire them and get them set up.

    Some of those species are very hard to find, boyfriends are a dime-a-dozen. I say get the roaches and find a new boyfriend.
