Hello! I've never kept any roaches before, so sorry if these are some stupid questions. What are some good species to begin with? I like the look of Simandoa conserfariam and some hissers, but I'm open-minded. I would prefer to just keep a few, so they preferably wouldn't reproduce easily, although I would be fine as long as I don't end up with hundreds. It would also be great if I didn't have to worry about them flying or climbing the walls of their container, but it doesn't matter too much as long as they won't actively escape. What are preferable conditions? I'm not sure how much moisture, what they're substrate should be, or how often they should be fed. And finally, from what I understand, they eat a wide variety of fruits and veggies, and citrus puts them in breeding mode lol. Thanks!
