Decided to upsize out roach colony housing using a $7 sterilite container from Home Depot and some mesh screen following this video from Alex at Tarantula Haven. Because the roaches prefer darkness, I spray painted the sides with a $1 can of black spray paint. Total investment in this container is about $10 I am storing the container on a baker's style metro rack and have a standard home heating pad on low under the container, this raised the floor temp to around 85-90 degrees. I'm using a few egg cartons cut in half making handling easy inside the container, though as the colony grows we will probably need to add more egg crate. Food and water are simple, dried dog food and water bites in a small planting basket. We just upgraded to this so I will update this thread if anything changes for better or worst to warrant an update. Happy roaching!
