In Reply to: roaches breeders, i have a few questions....... posted by herpluver on May 08, 2003 at 18:53:52:
Just thought I'd add that hissers can produce young every 2 months or so. This varies depending on how you house them. One important factor is you need to make sure they are warm enough. Cold hissers don't breed. If you've had your hissers for over 2 months and are not seeing any babies, you're not keeping them warm enough. They seem to like temps in the mid 80s to low 90s.
:ok, i've decided to go ahead and breed roaches to feeders. i'm going to breed hissers and lobsters. all my questions apply to both kinds.
:#1 how many females can 1 male "handle"?
:#2 do they lay eggs or birth live babys?
:#3 how many babys do they have per pregnancy?
:#4 how often to they give birth?
:#5 do the babys need to stay with there mother or can they be transfered to another tank after being born?
:#6 what do you feed them to gut load them and make them nutritous?
:thanks so much for the time
