Hey guys, I just got my first arachnid and its a beautiful Asian Forest Scorpion.
I am just wondering if you guys think this looks accurate to its natural environment at all?

Here is what it looks like currently:

I really want to simulate a natural environment for my scorpion. I want it to look like a sub tropical or tropical forest in Asia.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

My scorpion is about 4 or 5 inches long

If I should get more bark/logs/rocks/moss where should I get it from? I am worried the stuff found outdoors will harm the scorpion at all? I know where to get the moss but thats about it. There is a floor tile that takes up half the tank, and has the water dish and bark piece on top of it. I made a small burrow available where the tile ends in the middle.

Does anyone have a layout of how it should look or how I should set it up? I am not the greatest at setting up the natural look.

I saw this guide and it is good but a little bland in color.

Thank you guys!

If you PM me the links I can post the pictures for you.

Sorry about the picture thing by the way, it's for spam protection.

I ended up going to the store and spending 30 dollars for moss and stuff, I completely changed what it looks like. I tried really hard for the past 4 hours and I am proud to say it is basically perfect, and looks exactly out of a scene from South East Asia. Hopefully I can show you guys what it looks like somehow before the 7 day thing lol.

Sorry again that it took so long for me to update your post.

The guide you referred to was posted by Alex. If you look through his started threads you'll find all sorts of examples of his enclosures. They look very natural, and many of them have live plants. Here's another guide he wrote: http://www.scorpion-forum.com/t7041-how-to-build-a-large-scorpion-vivarium
