PostSubject: picked up two new emps for my tank.......   9/13/2010, 9:27 pm

Ok here's a few pics of them...







I believe this is my adult male.


I believe this one is a gravid female... ok I'm hoping it is....










here the male is already starting to burrow deeper in the burrow I made them... been in the new home less the 10 minutes.


And here is the female eating her second cricket in the first 10 minutes of being in her new home.


ok so today I went to petco and finally bought me two scorps...I will be adding 6-8 more in the next month. had the viv setup for about 2 weeks now....wanted to make sure we have the temp and humidity are perfect before I being home the scorps... Ya I'm weird like that...still going to build a custom stand but that will be in a week or two.... anyway had a few things happen that I didn't expect from what all I have read on here.. I'm going to kinda list them so you guys can let me know what you think....


First as I said I bought them at petco they admit to not know anything about them.....they had 6 emps in a 5 gallon tank with 1/4" of substrate they know what they are doing wrong...but anyway.....they let me pick the two I want so first I picked the biggest one... got him in the container and sexed it... turns out from what this site has tough me it's was a male and I really wanted a female so I deside to take two.. I pick the second largest ones and it looks like a gravid female... so get it in the next container and sure enough female..... I tried to get pic for the site to double check my sexing but they just wouldn't come out clear....

now by the pics am I correct that I got 2 adults?

does one of them look gravid to your guys?

ok so I place them both in the viv and one found the burrow I started...you can see that in one of the pics above....the second one chose to walk around a bit then found the burrow.. they seamed to have a small tussle because the one that found the burrow right off had already started to burrow more... ya less then 10 minutes in the viv... from what I have read that is quick.... so after a minute the second emp (female) back out of the burrow eating a cricket... wow she was eating in under 10 minutes in the viv there again I read this not normal...

with the male already burrowing did I just do the viv right or did I just get one that started early?

with my female eating starting eating early like she did (petco had crickets running loose in the tank with all the emps.) so I figure she wasn't that hungry?

now they have been in the tank half hour to an hour yet they are both out running around checking out the tank.... boy are they active... their tank is currently 84.6 f humidity I'm not sure of the meter I got is pissing me off... but with the false bottom I'm sure it's good..... ok I'm going to post this one and add another post with more pics....

LOL no there is between 5-8" it just doesn't look like it... the hill in the back left has 8" to cover the heat pad that's on the back of the tank....the front of the tank measures 5" there is 7 blocks of eco earth.... there is also a 1-1.5" false bottom not included in that measurements... but thnx for the concern... I'm going to be adding a few more plants and a few skulls for more hides.. there is already about 7 hides but I want the skulls in there...I saw a pic on here of a guy who has a croc skull in his viv and I like it.... I think I'm going either human or cat suck as wild cat....
