I'm considering getting an emperor scorpion and there seems to be much conflicting information knocking about. I'll put together an incomplete care summary, and if you guys could fill in the blanks, and also ammend any false information that I've picked up, that'd be awesome.

Housing:

10-20 gallon enclosure for a single adult
Ceramic heat bulb creating a warm side of 80-85 and a cool side of 70-75
4-6 inches of sphagnum moss for substrate
Mist as to keep humidity between 70% and 80%
Two compact hides on each side
Shallow water dish, large enough for the scorpion to get into

Feeding:

Feed commercially stocked insects
[size, frequency of feedings, ect?]


Thank you.

Okay, never mind. I've just stumbled across this site's care sheet. Although, I'm still confused about feeding issues.

Don't be. Scorps especially emps tend to fast sometimes. Just feed them a few crickets or roaches every once in a while. If they don't eat try again the following week. Personally I feed randomly. Sometimes I go months, weeks, days. Take a good look at the "Learning the Hobby" section of the forum as well as the Emperor section. To which this topic has been moved to.
