View Full Version : B. fusca?

Has anyone tried the Blaberus fusca, aka dwarf cave roach? From the description listed on blaberus.com they seem to be similar to a larger version of Blaberus discoidalis. I'm just wondering if anyone has a culture of them and can rate their reproductive and growth rates when compared to that of hissers or other larger species.

They are nigh identical to the Discoids in growth rates, the simple difference is that you'll end up with a far fatter roach than even the biggest discoid (Meaning a pregnant female most likely).. they have quite a bit of girth to them.

As far as specific data.. you might want to go to http://members5.boardhost.com/allpetroaches/index.html?1130222590
and ask a question there just to get it to another audience and see what they can think up :)
