I was at a local pet store tonight and picked up 2 emps. roughly 3-3 1/2 inches. I have them in a 18x12x7 critter keeper. I got loose coco fiber for substrate and wet it down pretty good. It's about 80degrees in my room. it's pretty humid too. One is chillin in the hide and the other is roaming around. They seem to be happy so far.

I'm gonna try and upload some pics later today. They were pretty active last night. They seem to be doing great. They are probably still too young to sex right? Like I said they are about 3-4 inches.

Thanks. And the size is just my rough estimation. But as I look at them I'd say body length is between 2-3 inches.(my estimation sucks)I will get pics and load them later today.

If they are more than 2 inches then we should be able to sex them.

My camera phone sucks so I gotta get a digital camera to take some good pics. From my educated guess and what I've looked at online I have 2 males. One emp is larger than the other but I'm going with both being males.

Have you checked the genital operculums as well, and not just the pectines?

Picked up the other emp the pet store had. Smallest of the three. Pincers and tail are much smaller than the other two emps'. I took out the other two, rearranged and put all three in at the same time. They seem to be doing alright.
