The genus is Heterometrus, and there's a few species available in the trade.

The tanks are called "false bottom" and it's to provide a reservoir of water beneath the soil that keeps the substrate and air humid.

If your emperor scorpion stops eating, don't panic.

I used this plastic material to cover lights in drop ceilings along with PVC pipe (couplings) to create a lighter false bottom (link).

They also have this stuff in stores that look like stones but are extremely lightweight. I'm not sure what they're called.
