Nice and proper setup. What species and how did you get so many? And yeah, they are real healthy looking, with such a nice setup I couldn't imagine why they wouldn't be.

Hello T.C, I was able to buy them through a tip from another forum's member.  I was so desperate to find this type of cricket, that once I got to the cricket farm I bought more than needed Laughing I think they are of the Gryllus Pennsylvanicus family.

Laughing  You guys don't think I use them for bass fishing right??? I have plenty of artificial lures for that purpose as is!!! To answer your question I just like to observe my crickets, and I especially love their chirps believe it or not.  When I was little I loved to catch insects, and especially crickets, just to try and raise them and to try to take care of them.

Thank you natureguy, you should, they are plenty fun to look at, and not too hard to maintain.
