The female will most likely try and eat him so he will need to be removed to his own vivarium/ or method of housing

well, I had a successful mating and they both seemed fine after. I saw them doing the dance, I let them be and came back to see a spermatophore. I then came back about 2 hours later and saw them do it again haha. Saw a second spermatophore lol

If you don't want to risk it, remove the male. I left him in there and it was fine.

yup, mating is not always successful and yes, they can mate again afterward too. I didn't even plan on having them mate actually haha. I just kept them together and one day saw them mating. The male has passed away, but I believe the mating was successful because the female is getting larger.

He passed away several months after the mating. He probably died due to stress or old age. The reason I say stress is because I introduced an emperor scorpion and it kept harassing him. I took the emp out, but my heterometrus died shortly after.

What species are we talking about here? I've only mated Uroctonus mordax and Centruroides exilicauda, and in both cases the two scorpions just wandered off in their own directions.

Stop spreading misinformation. This isn't even true with mantids or black widows.

That doesn't deserve a "most likely" designation then.
