I'm buying some H.Arizonensis and was told not to use sand.I was told to use cocofiber because sand will mess up the joints of the scorp.I collect T's and have twenty-five and am no stranger to the hobby and I would love some Scorps.I just joined this forum lastnight for the scorpion know how of others and would be thankful for your help on this subject.Thanks all.. Very Happy

Well you can always leave a deler review to warn people of false information but a combination of peat and sand should be fine and escavator helps sustain burrows I personally go for the latter.

i dont think you are getting adults at 3', they are a larger scorp, you might be getting them at 4inster if they are that small.
correct me if im wrong.
my H.Arizonensis from head to tail is roughly the size of my adult P.imp minus the plumpness.

three inches isn't an adult. One problem with h. Arizonensis is getting them to molt. Your excavator/sand should be a good choice. Remember in the wild they burrow up to 6 feet. Down that deep humidity is 40-60%

When you mix the clay, use around 2/3 sand to 1/2 clay. Too much excavator makes it too hard for the scorp to dig.

The shop that Connie's mentioning is in the UK, so shipping may be an issue. When I want new scorps I scan the classifieds on the various invert forums.

Welcome aboard, by the way! Smile
