The moss just isn't needed, and it doesn't go well with the setup.

As far as the size, the reason I said a bit bigger is because he really has no room to forage.

The depth(front to back) isn't a big deal, but the width could be wider, it's not going to kill him or anything if you don't but I would try to put him in something bigger.

As far as more cocoa fiber, that's fine with what you have. I can't see how deep it is, but I would at least have minimum of 3" because with the room he'll end up burrowing.

To maximize the kritter keeper space, if you go to a walmart and get the flower pot tray(the thing that the flower pots sit on that when u water it doesn't drain all over) and turn it upside down and make him a little hide in the corner then cover it up.

The tray I'm referring to is: and it comes in different sizes, just get the appropriate one.

I've bred Emperors for years btw, and I've never had one die without the age factor playing a part.

Hey any info and input is welcome I'm more of a T guy but I would like to branch out into some scorpions. I just didnt want to give him to much space because I've heard thats bad for them.

yeah my emperor and red claw are both in 12x12x12 enclosures and they dont even come out, its a little cluttered but when the red claw did explore it wasnt a problem.

link to the pool idea? i am setting up a new enclosure for my asian forest scorpion and I would love to do something cool like that.

You should have at least 4-6 inches of cocoa fibre for burrowing there are care sheets on here with all the info you would need Smile and yeah like the others have said if your gonna use moss just use it in a few places it's only really uses to help with humidity and I can't see it helps them if they decide to burrow Smile
