My H. spinigerus killed a terrarium mate today! It was the big male. I believe it was killed by my gravid female. There were six in there counting the dead one, so any of them is a suspect. I don't reccomend these as good communal scorpions. I see them interact very violently sometimes. I'm really not down anything. I bought 5 and the supplier gave me a free one plus three free confusis. Different terrarrium of course. The confusis seem to be doing much better together but still don't play as nice as my sculpturatus colony. I reccomend to anyone thinking of a communal to go with C. vittatus or if they want a kind of hot species to go with sculpturatus. Hoffimanius don't make the best tank buds.
TBH

Sadly, they get along until they dont get along but if you KNOW you have a gravid female you need to take her away from her tank mates as she is likely to do it again

I could've told you this wouldn't end well . . . most of my research said they were "sometimes" communal, so I thought I'd give it a shot, but wound up with two munched scorps. Sad

"They always are communal until they aren't." said a wise invert keeper once.

I would state that even a species considered confidently communal like H. spinifer will have its share of bad mixes. Gravid females are quick to assert aggression on courting males and smaller females within their proximity. And when they get at it you will have to intervene.

Always best to observe mixes for a couple of hours if you have that many in your day to spare staring blankly into a scorp tank (lol) for sure!!!
