I got a baby P. Liosoma from Ken the Bug guys about one and a half weeks ago. It did well, and aggressively hunted the small crickets I fed it. But, during the evening, it would come out of its shelter and run frantically around the tank. It died just yesterday. I can't figure out why.
Here are the parameters:
Substrate: Calci sand
Temperature: 74 (Throughout the tank) - 83 (At the warmest spot)
Humidity: 56% to 58%
How did my scorpion die? Why was it running frantically around the tank at night?

Huh, that's odd.
Sometimes scorpions just die for no apparent reason. I've had Lychas and Androctonus species die much the same way.
As for it running around the tank, I've noticed several species do this. It could be from you shining light on it, or your movement startling it.
