Lost my colony

Were you feeding any dry chow? If you only feed them veg and water gel, their frass is very moist. I would suggest feeding more chow for a bit and see if that helps. Do you have a ventilation screen? Sorry if you already answered this.

i fed them 1 whole orange twice a week. that may be the problem. i may have given them too much for a moist diet... i'm going to feed more dry foods... thank you for the thought... :) i hope i don't lose this next colony. i'm going to have thousands of babies soon so that would SUCK...
i fed my colony 1 slice of cantaloupe the other day
the next day when i was about to take it out, i noticed there was an orange puddle at the corner
it was fairly small and no roaches where caught in it
as i wiped it out, it smelled like cantaloupe......

i never had this happened even when i feed a whole orange
but i guess cantaloupe is a lot more juicier
so that's something to take in mind when feeding very hydrated fruit

just want to share my similar experience and hope it helps in some way :D

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
