I would separate the paucadins before they scoff each other, they are non communal hun.

the smeringus are pretty neat looking scorpions and must admit I wasn't to sure about them when I saw them on Martins website but in the flesh they are lovely looking scorpions Smile

And the leaves with eyes look pretty good too Smile

I'd also put the paucidens in a drier environment.

Cool additions, though, especially that uncommon Heterometrus sp. Very Happy

Watch out for those H. dilatata when they mature -- the adults can give a nasty kick!

dry dry, this is a species from pretty arid regions. I don't know much about this species, but I think you could keep them on dry coco fibre. mabye with a water dish, but I' sure they get all needed water from prey.

I kept paucadins in a 3 foot tank and the female dominated it and scoffed her tank mates (I was told they were communal when I first kept them) There was plenty of hides and space for them. they lasted 48hrs and they started eating each other!

They aren't mature so I dont know if they will tolerate each other. but defo as adults they will cannibalise

If the caresheet helped, then I'm glad. Smile I kept mine on sandy soil with no supplemental water, but some people have observed them drinking -- so maybe provide a water dish if you have really good ventilation. A little bit of moisture is helpful for juveniles, such as a quick squirt at one end of the tank.

Your male is definitely mature, by the way.

So sand and coco-fibre mix ok? Also if i'm to separate them, how can i keep them (enclosure-wise) for space economy?

One of the reasons I prefer to stick to communal species

ideally you want 1 square foot as they are sub adults. floor space obviously more important than height Smile They get rather HUGE as adults so will need a little more floor space when they mature.

there are a variety of tubs you can buy that are stackable, you could put them all against a heat vertical heat mat

I'll have to get you links tomorrow coz it's late and I really need to go to bed soon Smile

EDIT: And I agree with mikes care sheet. so many care sheets say high humidity and everyone who keeps them at high humidity end up losing them. I actually had this convo with Martin Goss at the show and he was surprised to hear this. Even more so when I told him I had successfully bred them in these conditions. Just shows you doesn't it. Nearly every care sheet I come across says 75-80% humidity.
