Co-existence of species

Recommended Posts

Just for future reference, would putting larvae of different species in the same container be plausible or would they cause harm to each other? Same question with adults. I'm guessing it varies between species to species. I was considering keeping a pair of Pachnoda Sinuata larvae I'm getting soon in the same container as my Dynastes hercules larva, but I want clarification as to whether this is plausible. Sorry if this is an incredibly stupid question, I'm still new to all this.

I wouldn't recommend keeping two different species together. There's a potential that one species could become outcompeted and die. Also, if one species have shorter life cycle than the other species, it could have problem during pupation period cause the larva of other species can damage the pupal cells.
