If you are unsure of their sexes, post a couple of pics up of their pectines and we can sex them for you.

If you are certain that they are both mature (have red telsons) and male & female, then take out the scorps, mix the set-up around including substrate to eliminate any territorial issues and then introduce them both at the same time to the new set-up.

You should expect a little sparring at first, but this is normal. If they start to fight, then remove and separate them. (Trust me, you'll know fighting from the sparring Wink )

Apart from that, just keep an eye on them and see how things go.

Well i know one is a female ( small hairs on the pectines and heart shaped operculum) and the other a male ( longer hairs on its pectines and oval shaped operculum) as fair as introducing the scorpings into the same tank which i did and they are fine, they never fight or anything but hide all day and night lol so i don't know that's why asked if there is something i should know etc.. also, they are mature they both have red telsons so i douno

Female could already be gravid. Or there may not be a suitable place for the male to deposit his spermatophore. Or, they've already mated, and you didn't notice.

If you want to try again, take the male out for a few days and re-introduce him . . . he may suddenly notice her pheromones after being by himself.

Are you 100% sure they are not both females?

Why don't you post up a couple of pectine shots to eliminate the possibilty Smile

Place each scorp into a clear plastic container and take shots from underneath ensuring to get a clear view of the pectines and operculum.

They do, but the operculum is a much more accurate & reliable guide to go by with emps.
