Default Cockroache Enclosure

I'm looking to do some new cockroach setups but need enclosures that they won't escape from but that I can also display. Was thinking about using Exo Terra Terrariums and adding extra layers of mesh on the top and in the vents at the bottom to try and prevent the offspring from escaping. Any other suggestions?

You could always just keep species that can't climb glass/plastic.

Lots of Vaseline works as a physical barrier as the animals cannot get a grip and will slide down. Just ensure there isn't any gaps.
