PostSubject: Rehousing/Remodeling & an Update   4/20/2011, 12:09 am

Remodeled the Adult Emperor Scorpions today, fun experience too. I put them in a plastic box thing I had but didn't realize that the corners had some kind of sealant on it. 10 minutes later, my girlfriend screams at the top of her lungs. One got out and was crawling on the side of our bed =D. Funny the way she reacted and then I just grabbed it by the tail and plopped him on my hand. Very Happy

I added more dirt, took out some of the bigger would chips and experimented with some terrarium moss.

Fun angles;



I posted earlier that I had an Emperor give birth to a batch of about 20. I didn't get any pictures of her because I checked on her yesterday and I don't want to bother her again but I purchased a 10 gallon that currently 3 juveniles in what I suspect to be in their 2i or 3i are living in. I tried to pretty that up too and these are my results.

10 gallon;



One more thing, it seems that from my 'Scorpion Recommendations' post that you guys have persuaded me to get the Mesobuthus Martensii and Lychas Mucronatus for my 150 gallon enclosure. Quick question, how many could I comfortably colonize in their?

Yup, the wood will probably mold, but if that happens, you can always use half of a clay pot. Good job putting the hides close to the ground, it'll make them feel more at home Smile

Ah, I was actually referring to the thing that goes on top of the saucer:



I used to break them in half and use them for hides. They work very well because they have a shallow arc and are close to the ground.

Well I bought these half hide things and what I do is bury them with the front part having a very tiny opening instead of digging it for them. That way I get more activity from them, and the last pictures of the adult is him digging just like I wanted.

The wood chips aren't actually wood chips but Coconut Husk. I've been using them for about 4 months and I haven't had any 'mold' problems. The packaging even said, great for holding moisture and retaining humidity.

Oh geez... probably around 30-70 depending on the setup and hides. Just guessing but you could fit a ton of communal scorps in a 150g tank.
