Nice one :2thumb:

Good looking pics there. Hopefully mine will shed soon. I need to make them a net cage this weekend, no idea how to go about it though, lol.

Those white things are a beetle larvae of some sort, can't do better than that though I'm afraid, lol.

the beetle-looking one is some kind of superworm larvae , the long brown one I have no idea about , some kind of mealworm and as for the fat ones I'm still clueless.
I'll need to build a bigger one after the L6 moult and I'm going to do it properly instead of tying some chopsticks together and stapling mesh around it :whistling2: the bastard bluebottles are always escaping from it.
If yours are from the same batch is mine I reckon yours'll be shedding very soon :2thumb:

I only have two left , the beetle larvae and the fat white one , I might keep the beetle one as it looks like it's going to be hatching soon
