Keeping millipedes, isopods, and roaches together?

I am planning on keeping some sort of millipede and I was wondering if I could keep them with hissing roaches and isopods was possible without one species killing or causing major stress to the others.

I can't see that that would be a problem - provided that they were housed in a suitable sized enclosure and the isopods in particular were kept in check - they seem to do really well in millipede enclosures and you may end up with a population explosion :)

Hissing ****roach males are territorial amongst other males roaches. I would think a intruder in their area would get the same treatment. Not to mention the isopods would be a delicious treat to them.

I've never kept more than one male in a very small group of roaches so thanks for that.. Never had much trouble with females though :)

I've got a huge hisser colony...they are constantly fighting, sometimes to the death. I can constantly hear hissing in the room. I always kill off the larger males to my spiders. Gotta keep a few to keep the colony going though.
