ya be careful what advice you take from the petshop....trust here first..... petco where I got my emp's had 6 under a single hide in a 5 gallon tank with less the 1/4" of substrate and 71f and 45% hum.... so they where off on everything... no I can over look the substrate because they are trying to sell them not raise them as pets.... but the rest to me they should fix... and that's the pet store. another local petstore sells emp and they keep them in single critter keepers at about 75f with about 15% hum.. and once again less then 1" substrate.......

THNX ya they are my first of many to come...LOL starting with 2 of them but going to get 8-10 for this one tank....it's a 40 gallon breeder tank.... so 8 should be no issues and I think 10 should be ok with the larger base of the breeder tank... the tank is 36"X18"X16" with 1" false bottom and 5-8" of substrate.... I can't wait to finish the decor and add more...LOL and I have only had these 2 for 24+ hours...LOL

Looking good. Just a general warning about the UV light. Scorpions are extremely sensitive toward UV rays so the black light could be damaging them. Its fine for short bursts but dont leave it on. They are looking good. How long u Had them now?

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....

Yer soz wen i posted, i forgot that emps dont burrow like the aussie ones. With the Australian species like urodacus elongatus, you need about a foot of substrate :O
