So, I finished setting up their tank, and I'm really excited!!!! I used an exoterra terrarium, 12x12x12 (which I was told was HUGE for two roaches! I'll be getting the roaches somewhere around Thursday or Friday I think, and I'll post pictures of them when I do!

Amazing! Will you be getting two males?

I used to have that exoterra for a pink toe tarantula. For tarantulas they can get their tarsals stuck in fine mesh so I found it made a better other invert or reptile cage unless modified.
:D
I'm sure your roaches will love it.

The boys' room is beautiful! The dinosaur is a nice touch. :cool:

I got my first husband 2 black emperor scorpions for Valentine's Day one year, but because we heard that if you are allergic to bees that you shouldn't handle them I was the only one who put their hands in the tank. So I had fun arranging their set up every few weeks. Once I tried planted seeds for flowers, but they had just sprouted before we added more crickets and they mowed them down completely. :grumpy: Another time I found 3 tiny adobe houses at a garage sale and added those to the tank. That was the best set up ever because when the scorpions crawled across the buildings it looked like something out of a horror movie! :rofl:

Those are some macho fellas to pull off that fancy pink bag. :cool4: j/k That is a neat way to ship them, though.

Those guys must be in heaven with that set up! And I agree with @CrazyBirdChick definitely keep keeping us posted!
