    My original Panchlora sp. "White" female died due to unknown causes, however I was able to order two more, they arrived yesterday, along with a free male. :) Hopefully these two will do better and reproduce for me!

    Excellent collection Dude, have any of these species struck you as good feeders? No offense ;) I still have a few species of pet roach.

    Thanks man! :) The African bullets, Blaberus atropos, Byrsotria sp. "Cuba", Parcoblatta fulvescens, Pycnoscelus surinamensis, and Pycnoscelus sp. "Thailand" all seem like they could make decent feeders, my B.atropos and P.surinamensis colonies in particular seem to be exploding!

    Excellent. Did I tell you my E. sp whites matured and died off? Very frustrating. I've just ordered supplemental dubia and lats to enlarge the colonies. I think I'll try some African bullets and B atropos

    That sucks man, sorry to hear that. :( Did they have fruit and everything?

    The B.atropos can be slow at the start, but I started with about 8 individuals and now I have easily over 100 nymphs in the enclosure, which are growing fast, need to start culling the colony! The African bullets are way faster, I started with a single pair last march I think, and now I've got about 80-90 large nymphs and adults in there, which are going to produce a ton more offspring!
