The babies have just come off their mother's back. How long until i can move her into a smaller tank by herself?

If the babies are off the moms back you can move her around as you like.. ? but why move her?

Even at second instar they still may run back to mom if something startles them. When I separated my female mordax from her brood, there were still three on her.

How did you remove yours then? Wasn't it in a hide?

you can just scoop them up with a spoon when they're out in about or use tweezers to pick them off the mum's back (that's what I did, anyway)

not really, if there are scorpions moving around her back all the time she probably won't notice to much. *you could also cool her down for a little while"

^^ Put her in the fridge.

The easiest way to keep mom from flipping out is to take her out of the tank first.

She is in a different position all the time and they are upside down on the ceiling, a big bunch of them either side of mum, a couple underneath her and 3 or 4 on her back by her tail.

update: some of the babies are venturing to the opening of the hide to collect legs from a couple of dead crickets.
