i currently own 1 emperor scorpion and it is in a 93 litre tank and i feel it looks too empty and was wondering if it would be a good idea to put more in it, i wasnt sure if the emp i currently have would accept another scorpion, what would you guys reconmend?? another scorp? if so what kind or leave him on his own? any suggestion would be great, just take it easy on me as im new to this:D cheers guys

P. imperitor (emperor) can live comunal, just make sure they are they same size and have enough places to hide so they dont fight for a spot or eat each other

Yeh, firstly it's a roomy tank then?! Haha Razz

Emperors can live comunally and so some more of those should be fine as long as they are of a similar size.
Provide plenty of hiding spots and plenty of food.

Some people have had successful experiences keeping asian forests (Heterometrus sp) with emps. But i can't speak from personal experience.

I have no personal experience with mixed tanks, so I can't help you there. To avoid territory issues, try removing the first scorp from the tank for awhile, then introduce both to the tank at the same time. If you do this, the first scorp won't feel that its territory is threatened by the new scorp.

your wait could take days to monthes up to year. But good call on that, if you're sure its a female.

Like most hobbyist would tell you, I personally don't recommend mixed species tanks unless you've got back up specimens a ind you just wanna experiment.... cos if I'm not wrong scorpions are only immune to the sting of their own species.

l've been told L. mucronatus and M. martensii can co-habit but I'm going to breed enough for a surplus colony before I try something like that

best of luck on you emp
cheers
