Short care sheet for Chrome Roach:
Origin: South Africa
Size: 3-3.5 cm
Humidity: keep substrate moderately humid (do not over-moisten!)
Difficulty Level: Easy
Relatively small, colourful and amazing species, not so sensitive to keeping conditions as its relative Centurion Roach, so can be a good starter Gyna species. Chrome Roach can climb and fly, so protective barrier (i.e. petrolatum layer) and firmly closed lid are highly recommended (although roaches will hardly survive in room conditions).
They are not picky about food, so any fruits/vegetables can suit them.
Females are a bit bigger and wider than males, which are more slender and active. This species is ovoviviparous, i.e. they bring live nymphs.
