Well I was planning on getting a few Buthacus Leptochelys, but have decided to go the "safer" route and decided to get either a few Emperors. What are other "beginner" scorpions?

edit: that are communal

U. mordax are pretty cool, if on the small side. Semi-communal (three adults in a 10-gallon seem to get along).

Well I have a 30gal. tank to work with, I'm thinking of dividing it into 3 or 4 sections. $ may be pushing it. I think I'm gonna get 2 Pandinus imperator, 2 Pandinus cavimanus, and maybe 2 Babycurus jacksoni. Tips are always welcome

although care for all of them are SIMILAR they need different humidity requirements. Also, P. cavimanus isn't exactly communal.

P. Cavimanus aren't communal? I see pics all the time with at least 4 or more in a tank together. But you guys know a heck of a lot more than me so... I guess my best bet would be to get just the Emps for now?

pandinus cavimanus are riskier to keep together than other pandinus or heterometrus sp. not saying it can't be done, but still..

The most commonly-found in the hobby tend to be; H. spinifer, H. laoticus, H. longimanus, etc.
