I have a communal enclosure that I use to house eight baby Black Asian Forest Scorpions(Heterometrus spinifer). I went in to check on them today, and I only counted seven. I panicked thinking one escaped, so I shown the Black Light over the enclosure to see if I could find one that was hiding, I noticed several pieces of 'glowing flecks' along the substrate... is this the remains of the missing scorpion? Did they eat him?

I did feed them all yesterday, perhaps two were fighting over a cricket, one killed the other and ate it?

Probably one got eaten. If you are seeing flecks. This sort of thing happens
Sometimes you can feed and they still decide to eat each other. But MAYBE this little one died and they just ate the remains. Survival of the fittest and all that

It's possible. I started with ten Hets and I currently have eight.

If the glowing flecks are really black and opaque, someone got eaten. If they're really thin and translucent, they're pieces from a molt.
