Do not place the infant Emperor in with the female one. If it is her baby then its fine but if it were separated from birth then do not..
as for the aggressive Female i would say she might b gravid. Gravid females tend to be more defensive. I have a fair experience with gravid female scorpions. One time they tame like a cat but at some times they are violent like a tiger.. What you can do it just leave her be. It wont harm if you did but if u do disturb her u might get a little pinch in the fingers... my 2 cents Very Happy

Aggressiveness isn't usually directly linked with molting.

As for being gravid, if you post a pic we might be able to tell. Very Happy

If your big aggressive one is an adult, it's not molting.

"In medicine, gravidity refers to the number of times a woman has been pregnant. In biology, the term "gravid" is used to describe the condition of a fish (or snake) when carrying eggs internally. In entomology it describes a mated female insect."

I know what you mean, as there are several similar definitions

I have a gravid female that's *extremely* cranky right now. It got to the point where I had to remove my male- he already has two scars from her, both right after mating. Lucky him, he gets a gentle female to chill with for now. XD

If you have a male in the same tank as the female, keep an eye on how they interact. Some gravid females are ok with males being around, others get super-defensive. Not sure how other females interact when one is gravid.

I would not suggest keeping the large female with the small emperor. Larger ones usually either harass the smaller ones or eat them unless they're from her brood and even then it's not 100% safe.

^ - laoticus

At the bottom of the previous page he said he was getting another male and so as long as its an adult or near enough then it should be fine Smile

But yeah don't add the little emp in there as well
