Very nice!
I have a matured male Innesi with me and it's a shame that i cant breed him!
I heard the young are hard to raise and they takes more than 2years to matured with >10molt!
Is that true?

Is that true?

Yes, it takes about 2 years to mature O. innesi, 6 molts as usual. they aren't that hard to raise as O. scrobiculosus or O. fuscipes.

I see, guess that is for O.Scrobiculosus then
It's hard to find information of Innesi on the net
Cheer for those cute offspring Wink

i don't know, i'm keeping 1.2 O. innesi communal, so there's no control over their sex life.

Hi Hauser,


i am reading your website when i came across the beautiful setup of your Orthochirus sp.
i am wonder how you made the sand stay intact all the way up the tank...

mind teaching how you did it and what type of sand are you using ... i kind of like the color of it ...the scorpion do really stand out in it.

currently mine is the dull yellowish sand. and it is very lose............

i am wondering if u mixed some water in it ?????


thanks

just mix some colored clay powder and water to regular sand an you can sculpture whatever you want (~90%sand /10%clay). it depends on the size, but usually it takes about two weeks to dry with some additional heating cables and lights on 24/7.

yes.. that is the setup i am refering to.. than you very much ... the setup is very nice
btw do you mean normal sand is acceptable.. and as for the clay .. i don't really get it ... which type of clay is safe and acceptable ???

sorry for this much question as i am going to build one nice home for my scorpion too.. lol .. and i wanted something just like yours .. Smile

side track abit.. i read from the net that these sp dun reali need a sand but of a dry setup with intact structure made of sand as these sp dun reali burrow but hide dun rocks and barks...

additional of some tunnels in the sand stucture do also provide extra hides and temperture differental...
.. fore weekly light mist of the side tank to provide mosture and humility...

yes, normal sand. i buy dry clay powder at a pottery or pet shop.
i never prepare tunnels, orthochirus and many other sp. will dig their burrows by themselves.

Some pet stores sell the clay powder as "Excavator Clay" -- it's great for a lot of burrowing spp. I use it 30% clay / 70% sand, but I imagine 10/90 will hold burrows well too. Very Happy

hi guys ..

after some advises from my friend sam and instruction from kind people here on how to build the landscape ...
i finally managed to get my hands on some of the material...

unfornuately, i am unable to get the potting clay or other clay but sam advised me to try using some red earth instead ...

i mixed the mixture with the red earth and got soemthing out Smile
but i think i added too much sand this time round

some experiment pics which i did with mini caontianers Smile


please do advise if any thing can be further done beforei proceed with the actual tank setup Smile
many thanks in advances........

this pics was taken abt a week ago .....
