  1. Welcome to the forum! Glad your beetles amuse you
  2. I did a quick google search and was able to find their care on a japanese website. Hope this helps you a bit. Google translate is your best friend. https://www.tsukiyono.co.jp/stag2/2018/01/19/メンガタ・メリーの飼育方法【幼虫飼育&産卵方/ http://judge.fool.jp/breed/mellyi.htm

  8. Very cool looking species! I'd be interested in some larvae if you manage to breed them
  9. I've seen them before. Didn't know it was a variation!
  10. Do they actually eat the koi pellets? I've been thinking of supplementing them.
