I have mine in a deep tank with about 10" sand to the back tapering down to about 7" at the front.

I use a composite mixture of sand / bentonite clay and pea gravel. Ratio 14:1:2

Mix it all together whilst damp and fill your tank. The clay binds the sand and stones to that it makes perfect burrowing substrate that can be scratched away by the scorpion but is firm enough not to collapse.

However I believe people also have good results using a coir / sand mix. the fibres of the coir hold the substrate well in order for the scorpion to burrow.

On the other hand I know a lot of people just provide normal shallow sand substrate and a hide and it appears to be of no detriment to the scorpion

to be honest with you, get a bag of kids play sand. You will get a lot more for your money. plus it is safe because it is cleaned for children to play with.

Silversand is also good value for money from a builders yard. You may want to heat treat beforehand because it is usually kept outside in the yard.

I haven't used any 'reptile' sand for ages because it is far to expensive for the amount you get. Kids sand and silversand may not be as fine as 'reptile' sand but it does the job for a fraction of the price

I usually bang it in the microwave for 7-8 mins

I 'think' the oven temps is 160oC which I again 'think' is gas mark 4 for about an hour - anyone please correct me if I'm wrong I haven't used the oven way for a few years.

yes I am a breeder but I haven't shipped outside of the EU. I think there may be paperwork involved but I have a friend who runs his own spid shop here in the uk and I will ask him what the score is.
