Yes ? They are great for composting. I feel like every household should have one pet roach colony to eat all your leftovers/scrap Of veggies and fruits

This is basically what I do. I have tons of good soil from roaches and isopods.

Lol people made fun of me when I said chromes weren't that roachy... pictures don't do justice, all the gyna roaches look super cool. I don't like feeding them off either haha.

@JoXie411 can you take a pic of your chromes
Sure can, they are still very small and they run so fast it hard to get a good picture of them. The pattern on these guys are really interesting I’m sure @jamest0o0 could show you better ones and of adults, I don’t have adults yet

Here's one. The thing with gyna is they take a while to reach maturity and breed, but once they do they have hundreds of nymphs. So eventually you end up with a giant colony if you're a little patient.

Interesting pattern for sure! They have a unique appearance. I love the ivory roaches because they look so different. I can *almost* bring myself to say they are a beautiful roach....

Oh yes!! Those ivory heads are beautiful and the question mark roaches are very beautiful. They almost look like beetles
