Congrats! feed 2-3 per scorp, medium crickets once or twice a week,just let them loose in the enclosure and the scorps will do the rest.

my enclosure is an 18x18x18 exoterra, so its pretty big for 4 little scorps. Will they have trouble finding crickets or catching them. If they do how do i fix it. Should i put more crickets in the tank or switch to meal worms. And how will i know if all my scorps have eaten and one of them hasnt just eaten all the crickets

for 4 scorps dump a dozen in and if they are hungry will come out and eat them or the crickets will go into their holes to hide and get eaten that way.I would not worry about under feeding most people "kill their scorps with kindness "(over feeding is bad). I switched to mealworms/superworms(better) and they work well just put them directly in the scorps hole.
