PostSubject: Big enough tank?   10/28/2009, 6:39 pm

I have a 15 Gallon tank, and I have one emp scorpion already but Im thinking of expanding to getting another one. I have two hiding caves put into the tank now and a water dish, using coco husk for substrate (peat moss basically) I was just wondering what adjustments I'd need to make so that I can accomodate another emperor in my tank.

Also, my emp now is a female, would it be wise to get a male or a female? I'll assume another female since I'm not looking to breed right yet.

Any advice at all would be great, if I should add more hiding spots to the tank, get more substrate, change the substrate, anything that I need to do to get another scorpion in there.

Thanks

Pix help. The tank is big enough to support two P.imps without much risk.

This should answer any and every question you have about your P.imp (unless you want scientific docs): http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/the-burrow-in-ghana-emperor-zone-f34/frequently-asked-questions-about-emperor-scorpions-p-imperator-t13.htm

I hear a good rule is 5 gal per emp? How big are yours? Mine live happy in about an 10 gal with 1 bit of cork bark and a fake plant that has as many hiding places as they can find, but usually they chill together under the cork bark

the pet store didn't have anything smaller than a 15 gallon tank so I had to get it. My scorpions are normal sized.
