Default Black and brown crickets

Is it ok to keep them together as the pet shop only had browns left and i had to house them with the blacks.

Blacks are more cannibalistic than browns.

Yes i agree. They are mainly for the gecko so they last ages and make an absolute racket.

My so called "silent brown crickets" wings have met a pair of my scissors at 4am many times (only if I don't have any hungry spiders)!
Grotesque things! I have also kept brown and black crickets together, just make sure they have enough food.

Oh yeah, I bought silent crickets once.
Definitely not silent.

Also, I know crickets aren't exactly the most intelligent creatures on earth but silent crickets really take the thicky biscuit

We've started feeding ours apple and it appears to have shut them up for good-not one chirp whereas before my room sounded like a rainforest o.o weird things
