PostSubject: Desert communal setup   4/4/2017, 3:40 pm

Hey guys. I'm going to be picking up some more communal insects for my communal setup this weekend. I'll also be expanding the side of their setup so i can house more critters.

Question.
Mainly about my milipede. Will it be able to be house with Blue death feigning beetles and about a dozen darkling beetles? If so, i may pick up another milipede for this setup.

Thank you guys.

As long as everything is well fed, I wouldn't think there would be issues. My buddy kept his hissing roaches and millipedes together... I would think beetles would be fine as well.

Ok cool. I read that these millipedes were found in the same desert as the darklings and death feigns, so i was hoping they would play nice since they're herbivores.

Just an observation, we have a fairly large millipede that lives in our forest floor in dead and rotten wood substrate. I never have really studied them and i`m not sure what this species is and what it eats.
