Omg! This is insane! I'm happy you are happy...... But I'm a bit
Is that coconut coir in their enclosure?
Coconut coir is VERY common with invertebrate enthusiasts. You can even find coconut fiber marketed towards reptiles and inverts in pet stores. I've used it for years but am slowly changing over to bioactive tanks.
I use it for growing crops for the birds. That's really cool! Never thought it could be used for this purpose. I love how light it is even when damp.
Wow, hissers are awesome! The only roaches I have are dubias, and those are for my bearded dragon!
Eeeeeeeeee! I could nvr! But applaud ppl who can
I'm a bug wimp. I see a bug and well depending on how big it is either grab a newspaper and roll it up or a sketchers tennis shoe OR a hardcover dictionary you know the one you need two hands to pick up and SMASH! hehe
They're doing pretty great (as far as I can tell)
@Peachfaced yes it is, it holds the moisture pretty well, and I think that's why it's used alot for insects
just thought I'd share a photo
Neat! Do they eat the spinach?
@Aubrey they are kinda cool. My husband couldn't deal with them so I know how you feel.
I don't really now to tell the truth. This is the first time I've tried it
The apple cube in the picture was gone on the morning so if they like apple!
Oh my gosh what a cute face! Both male? I didn't know if they would get along, but they do seem to enjoy being near each other.
They are both male. They had a fight one night, so I guess they've decided who's in charge lol
Yikes!! Lol!!! I'm on the wimpy side raising monarch butterflies & frogs
last "remodel" with Coco fiber....BC of recurring mold, I'm switching to orchid bark, which should be here Friday or Saturday!
I used to have issues with mold in some of my species that required higher humidity so I stopped using coco fiber as much for them. Have you thought about doing a bioactive enclosure to combat that? Even just adding some isopods might help if it continues to be an issue.
Not really...the idea of adding a bunch of tiny little bugs is unsettling to me lol, I have no problem switching to orchid bark as long as it's good for them, and I'm told it is so hopefully that works
