Eleodes armatus

I have had these for a few years now, and they are not the easiest darkling beetles to culture. They do not have the best pupal survival rates. They eat dog food, fruits and veggies. The substrate is coconut fiber and sand. I keep them dry with a moist corner. The adults can live 2+ years. Here are some pictures!

Male





 Female















Captive bred male with leg deformity. (The leg is much smaller than it should be).
















I am pupating 4-5 of the larva right now, and hopefully I should have some healthy captive bred adults soon. That's all for today, hope you guys enjoyed! :)
