Hi guys, just to double check are swammerdami communal?
Are madraspatensis communal?

I assume yes because most Het sp are but want to confirm just in case Smile


Cheers Guys

I'd be careful about them with regards to keeping them communally.... as in Keeping both species together or keeping the same species communally?

Reason being that Indian Hets in general from my experiences are more territorial towards their own kind than H. spinifer or H. longimanus...

In fact, though H. spinifer is considered communal, I don't recommend anyone just dumping 5 giants into a 2 ft tank without first observing initial reactions in a tub....

To test communality in Hets... dump the propose d collection in a plastic basin... baby bath would work nicely... watch out for individuals... any scorpions juddering are definitely males... take them out... then watch out for any females acting hostile towards each other within the first 5 minutes... isolate them... after 15 to 20 minutes, no other untoward interaction between individuals that this arrangement is workable....

Still if you don't have like 10 individuals of any species... try and keep them individually as adults... From my experiences with H. spinifer... 7i and adult should be kept individually.... 6i and below, it actually is benefecial to them to live comunally

I haven't read of any info concerning communal setups with swammerdami, probably because hardly anyone has them lol. If you have some, how much did you get them for anyways? LXDNG79 seems to have some good advice, I'd follow those.

It would be keeping the same species comunally. Either:
1) 2 Swammerdami together or
2) 2 Madraspatensis together

I might be getting a couple at 8 each which is dirt cheap compared to prices i've seen in the past. Very Happy
