Got 4 of these from leeds, not seen them before, flat milli's about 4cm in length, black which pink dots along the sides, they look orange in the pics but look pink in real life! quite cute really, don't really keep many milli's these days, but thought i should buy some as never seen them before :)

I think these are the giant ones that SD was on about before. But are they? They are one of the species that I was after last time when Shaz went to a bug show but couldn't get hold of any I think. :roll:

One has died, and all are male, so not a good haul, i feel like passing them on to someone with more experience with flats... :(

Well I don't have this species, but keep flatties as you know. Have you tried to put lots of dried leaves in (for hiding and also as food)? I noticed the species I have got only eat dried leaves but nothing else. Okay may be just a tiny bit of cucumber and courgette, but really most of the time the food are not touched. I know it's not the same really but may be worth to try that too?

Thats what i do, i have kept black and yellow flats before and they did ok like that, but with these beign a new species, i've not a clue were i'm supposed to go with temp etc, they were at 20 degrees C in the bug room, now i have moved them higher up where its warmer, i darnt check.
If i lose another you can have them, i dont' want to kill them all, they're too lovely...

I probably will kill them all if you can't do it. Flatties do not need very high temp but then I keep mine in the reptile room, which is 25 / 27C depending on the time of the day, and yours are different species, so it's like doing an experiment. :?
