i caught a house centipede and put it in the foraging area of the labyrinth formicarium because that's my only habitat will move it into something better soon. I put in a brown widow spider for it to eat and am waiting for it to eat it.Anyone else tried to keep these and if so any advice in keeping them?

Well, here is what i do. I have mine in a tank with wolf spiders, other centipedes, and isopods. I have a water bottle cap with water and fish food mix.  I also drop in other occasional bugs such as ants and earwigs. Mine is basically it's own little ecosystem. It's nothing but a food chain, and with this setup the centipedes and earwigs dominate and thrive very well.

I tried. It wouldn't eat a potato bug, and it died after 3 days. I hear they eat cockroaches and caterpillars along with spiders.

Btw, it's most likely Scutigera coleoptrata, which is found almost worldwide.

That sounds very cool! Do you have any pics? I'm wanting to do that with a old aquarium I have spare.
