Hi everyone...I'm in the process of setting up a new tank. Has been a few years since I kept scorpions. Had to give my old HA away when I moved. Guess I got the venom in my blood cuz I really want to get back into the hobby. This forum is absolutely amazing. Really thinking about trying a Babycrurus communal tank this time. Want to try the false bottom tank with one side damp and other side dry for the humidity gradient. Would love imput on your HA false-bottom set-up Eddy...Where mats and emitters are, wattage, substrate, etc.

I would think that if you did a false-bottom with a sandy substrate, the sand would fill in the cracks between the gravel.

This may have the effect of the water not spreading out as far from the corner tube, which would probably be good if you want a side-to-side humidity gradient.

The only suggestion I can offer is to use really deep substrate and not put too much water in.
