Warrior Beetles Question?

Recommended Posts

Pasimachus usually do fine in a smaller cage, its the Calosoma that tear each other apart if the cage is too small. If you're talking small deli cup I wouldn't suggest it for anything. I have known Pasimachus for a very long time and only heard of the name "warrior beetle" recently. Where does that come from?

I was asking if it was a freshly made up name. Show me a picture of a pasimachus next to a warrior.

I kept specimens together for years in a 10gallon and they never harmed each other, maybe if you never feed them or offer no substrate you could have problems. I'd suggest a 20long for 10 of them.

Had some problems with the ones I got from AZ.

I was keeping 5 specimens in a shoe-box size container. About a day after putting them together, I started finding decapitated specimens (actually, their thoraxes were cut off from their abdomens.). I lost 3 specimens like this and ended up with two specimens. They both died couple of months ago.
