Ok, so my emperor is out, and he's sluggish and hardly moves his limbs when I thouch him. Same thing happened to my gracilis, and one of my baby bicolors. Is my collection infected with something? Should I put everyone in an ICU? I'm prepaired for every precaution necessary.

Hard to say, could just be bad luck.


However I'd move the "sick" scorps to a different room just in case and clean out the enclosures.

What are you using as food? What are the prey items eating? Have any chemicals been sprayed around your area?

Chemicals, not sure. I fed them adult male roaches the other day, they came from Bayss and I know he takes good care of them. I've been feeding the roaches a staple of dog food with washed lettuce and oranges.

His tail is straight.....If his time has come, then thats ok. I understand all living things die. But if they're getting sick then that's super bad, I have a great collection going and I love them all too much to lose them.

One emp managed to get ahold of two roaches, could he have over ate? Maybe thats why he's sick. I didn't feed him two, i thought one of the others had it but i guess they ignored it and he got both. (I think)

Every death so far has been a scorp active during the day, while looking kind of sluggish.

Hmm. Honestly it's probably just bad luck, but there's no such thing as being too cautious.

Personally I'd keep a very close eye on your collection for a while; if you notice other scorpions displaying similar symptoms I'd relocate your healthy collection to a different room.

Where does the water you use for them come from?

My water comes from my fridge. It has a filter, so it's purified and filtered.

Really everything sounds in order then, I certainly know that you're caring for them correctly. I'd just keep an eye on things for the time being. It is a little odd that they all die recently with exactly the same symptoms, but stranger things have happened.

I'll be honest, the likelihood of me moving my shelf to a different room is out of the question with my mom. I'll keep an eye out for anything bad. thanks for your input.

You'll notice when your collection grows...so does death rates. I have an impressive collection of dead scorps
