PostSubject: another housing question   5/29/2011, 1:10 pm

hey sxorpion people.
i'm will probably be getting 4 P. imperator next month.
so... is there like a stocking guide for this species? i'm getting a 70cm by 40 by 40 viv, will this be to big or small for 4 juvies?
would it be better housing them seperately.. in 2 gallon faunariums for a while?
thank you
tom

If they are equal size it should be ok. I would separate them untill they are adult though, tom.

why do you need to seperate them though? just general all round fightiness if that's a word lol
how big does their viv need to be for the time being then?

You can separate until adult if you would like but the Juveniles are communal. For each P. Imperator you need at least 2.5 - 5 gallons for an adult. So take that into consideration.

It is 112 volumetric litres.
1 Gallon is 3.78 litres : 112/3.78 = 30 gallon tank

If an adult imperator needs 5 gallon you have room for 6 in that tank. But that is tight.

I'd say go for 5

edit: just make sure they have A LOT of hiding places and you can put 6 in it easily. Territoriality for a scorp means its burrow. Nothing more.

thanks mate.
i think i'll be happy with 5 for a while after i get them, i may get another after a bit of time.. after all, that would total my meat eating animals up to 12, i'd need to start breeding dubias i think..

yeah it would be good to have 4 with room, than more and risk territory disputes.
like i said.. it would also be more mouths to feed because i currently still buy crickets because i needed the livefood tubs.. for spiderlings lol.
plus im still trying to convince mum that roaches can't climb and can't survive at room temperature.

I feel you, I could breed roaches, but for the sake of my grandma I don't.
