Just keep them in separate enclosures until the female is adult size. thats all u can really do, or are you sure they are both emperors the female could possibly be a asian forest scorp and therefore not compatible with the emperor.

Give us a couple pics to help.

well, I don't suggest keeping a smaller scorpion with a larger one, but try it again and keep an eye on them. Sometimes they just quarrel in the beginning and relax after. If it keeps up, you'll just have to separate them.

-did you rearrange the tank before the introduction?

There's a thread on how to post images but I can't find it . . . if you have a photobucket account or something similar, it should have a BBcode for embedding images in forums.

If not, click the little floppy-disc-and-a-polaroid icon above the box you post a reply in, upload a pic from your computer, and it will give you a URL (http://.jpg) -- copy and paste that between [ IMG ] and [/ IMG ], but without the spaces.

Anywho, as has been said, keep them separate. You can also try rearranging the entire enclosure and mixing up the substrate first to eliminate any existing territories.

And a scorpion is immune to the venom of its own species, so a sting here and there isn't a problem (it's also part of many species' courtships).

Id be suprised if you put them in and they didnt brawl a little bit tbh, But make sure once you put them in together you monitor them as much as you can, i did with my juveniles but the fighting with them isnt much of a problem, but with adults they can get killed

i dont know if my emp scorps are males or females but i had no trobule keeping 2 in a small enclosure. i think its about a 10 gallon tank? im not 100% positive but it should be a 10 gallon. i first bought the bigger emp scorp then the day after i bought a smaller one, like 3/4 size or even 1/2 size.... they never fight? the bigger one is just lazy and the smaller one sometimes goes into defense mode
