unless the dealers are breeders themselves or have experience with scorps it very unlikely they will know how to tell the sex

virginia cheesman should know, its just she is sending you a sub-adult which makes it slightly more difficult to tell and if when it arrives it turns out to be male and she had said it would DEFINITELY be female she would have problems with you returning it etc.
if you ask for a female, chances are you will get one. personally i would ask for 2 females and then your likely to get at least 1.

well asked for a full adult and my partener spoke to her on the phone earlier today and she said which she said she has trouble sexing so she is sending a sub adult which she said will be fine to go in with a male adult so am confused oh well if its male we will just buy more females lol

We can sex it for you once you've got it to confirm what it is if you like - obviously you'll have to post a pic of its underside by placing it in a clear container and taking a shot from underneath.

I must warn you though, you won't be able to breed them until the sub-adult has matured.

Yes, should be fine in the same tank unless its also a male in which case fighting is likely.

As for the molting, it all depends on the individual specimen (like all other animals some grow quicker than others). It also depends on conditions, such as temp, humidity, availability of food etc.
So it could molt after a week of being in your possession or it could take several months, like I say it just depends.

as binksy said its a good idea to get more than one because you have more of a chancw of getting what you want. Thats why i get about 4 when im looking to breed them because your going to have more of a chance of getting a mix
