Arenivaga flordensis Sync-Up Issues...

Well, unfortunately it isn't looking so good for my Arenivaga floridensis "Lake Placid" (White Form). Despite keeping them cool, my males are all growing very fast, with two subadult males and one adult male remaining. Whilst the largest of my females only looks to be subadult, maybe even pre-sub... Unless the females pick up the pace I'm not going to be able to mate even one of them, which sucks since I'm apparently the last person working with this particular strain. 😟

I'll do the best I can, but I am not getting my hopes up. In any case, here are some pics of my adult male:

The situation kinda sucks, and is a common problem with this species as a whole. None of the floridensis strains seem to have stuck around in culture for long as a result, which is a bit frustrating. Hopefully I can somehow manage to sync up at least one pair and get another generation going.

Anyways, that's gonna do it for this post, thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed, stay safe, and I'll see you all next time! 😉


  1. It's ironic how hard it can be to get cockroaches to breed. Fingers crossed for that synched pair.

    1. Haha yeah, I always think of that when I'm dealing with finicky species, why won't you just "breed like roaches"! XD Thanks, I got my fingers crossed as well!
