The downsizing has officially begun!

I sold my two Androctonus mauritanicus and included my A. amoreuxi to someone with a successful breeding program to the former. I used the empty 10-gallon that was housing their tanks to relocate my Heterometrus longimanus juvenile community.

In the near future I'll likely be selling my Pandinus cavimanus and my larger Hadogenes paucidens specimens. Same with my Vaejovis spinigerus -- Eddy can have the female if he wants, 'cause he did win that contest after all Razz. (Eddy, you're also #1 for my male Diplocentrus lindo since you have a female.)

There's a couple other "odds and ends" species I have that I don't really feel like keeping. I'm not sure if I'll keep my emps -- I like 'em, and they do fine in my apartment, but they're pretty much miniature versions of the H. longimanus.

My tentative keep list:
Heterometrus longimanus
Uroctonus mordax
Centruroides vittatus (assuming her brood does well)
Tityus stigmerus (when Jared sends those)

That would mean I still have to get rid of, with the following caveats to potential buyers:
Centruroides hentzi <-- had a small brood that died, adult for at least one year
Centruroides margaritatus
Hadrurus arizonensis (probably keep for now)
Hottentotta judaicus <-- kept below developmental threshold, still 2I even though born in April or May
Paruroctonus boreus
Paruroctonus gracilior

Keep an eye in the classifieds, I guess. Smile

I'll be keeping at least three species, probably closer to five . . . I just get burned out having such a big collection and having so little of it in view.

I do plan to build things back up in a few years when I have the space. A one-bedroom apartment is more conducive to piles of delicups and small KKs instead of nice displays.
