I am getting a few c.elegans these days and i would like to know how much humidity this species needs.
Should the substrate consist of soil and if yes, should it be moist?

I am going to house them in small containers with a pice of cork to climb on


Thanks in advance

They're from drier areas, don't use too much humidity.

Yes, soil.
Not Moist.

P.S. I've been to where C.Elegans are found in Mexico. Cool

They are 2d instar. (they are so tiny!)

I have separated them in trios.
Should i put each one on its own, or they can tolerate each other in these small groups if fed well?

I feed them a normal size mealworm cut in half.

Thanks in advance

I'd advise separating them as with any buthid.

No need for dirt this young and easier to monitor if you do what me and many other stateside keepers do with our i2-i3 Centruroides sp:

A few drops, daily - I had then in the range 80f so I monitored their vials' RH constantly to make sure they didn't desiccate. Just enough that the tissue remained slightly wet.

Sorry for commenting on this long dead thread again, but those 2i have now had their own 2i babies walking around the mothers! It is a wonderful experience raising and breeding them!
