I just build this terrarium, it's a 75gal. Octagonal tank that I had sitting around the house so I decided to make some modifications and throw in my Emp. This is my first scorpion and just the beginning of his new homes build!





Please leave comments and suggestions Very Happy *I know I need to clean the tank glass.*

The bulb seen in the picture is not a black light, its an incandescent heat emitting night light bulb. I have a weird thing about red light at night so I got the black version.

this enclosures structure is ideal for housing centruroides species, depending how tight the door fits it.

but i would really wet down the substrate for the emps, false bottoms are cool, but its good to flood it every once in a while.

Yeah i'm slowly working in water into the substrate I don't want to turn it into a swamp though. I am still working on the doors security. the top is tight but the bottom has a little play still. maybe going to try a magnetic catch.

looks great! i agree about the moisture tho, the substrate should be a dark brown, like the bottom layer. overall looks great, beats my plastic sweater box by a long shot
