Okay, here's the jitz.

I have a couple Centruroides Elegans right?

Problem is I never really kept track of their instars.

One molted, then another, and blah blah, I lost track.

I am wondering if I should put them together now...

They are sexable.

Or should I just feed and see if they turn fat for a while?

I made the same mistake with my B. jacksoni and lost two of them. I'd wait.

If they're sexable, and the females are a bit larger than the males, then it should be safe.

Well... I think I'm going to go ahead and try.
How do you go ahead and attempt for them to breed?

It looks like I have 3.1.0
So Would one male suffice?
Or should I try all three?

Should I put the female in for a day or two so she can scent?

ye, I think it would be best to put the female in for a while, then introduce the males. I think one will suffice, pick your healthiest looking one..

^What he said. Let the female lay down some pheromones in her tank before introducing a male.

Hmm . . . if it's 2.2 . . .

Definitely put the females in their own tank(s) first. I'd just put all four in together to increase the odds of someone mating, but if you want a record of your bloodline, only put one male in with one female.

Hmmm
On secon thought I think I just put two females together.
But the one I am sure is a male is already jittering.

But man, the female is HUGE compared to this little skinny guy.

Okay, are these sperm packets?
And is there a way to know if the female to it in?

So I asked on Venomlist
The one guy that answered said that since they are still there, that means it has not been taken into the female.
But I was always under the impressions that there was two parts.... the stick you see there is what sticks to the ground, and then there was a second part which goes inside.

but I guess it means it didn't happen!!
Atleast with ONE pair, because I was POSITIVE I saw one of them doing the dance. They where uside down on a branch though, does it matter?

SO many quiestions

^"That guy" sounds like he doesn't know what he's talking about. When the female goes over it, it opens up and the sperm is released inside. The exterior shell remains behind, unless the female eats it.

In fact, seeing a spermatophore is usually the sign scorp enthusiasts look for to confirm that a mating was successful.
