I just use isopods from outside, there are plenty of them. I live so far back in the woods that there is no worries as to pesticides.

I think cats can go in there. Maybe a pony if your tank is large enough...



Seriously though, I have no idea about anything else. I guess anything could really go in there as long as you don't mind it possibly becoming dinner. Within reason of course.

If you do catch isopods outside make sure they don't have any chemical on them. They can build up a tolerance to pesticides and fertilizers, but if you scorp eats one it could kill it because they won't have the same tolerance.

I think they are all the same. Not sure where they come from... As long as you aren't mixing scorp species, and what you put in there isn't toxic, aggressive, or larger than the scorpions you should be alright.

Go ahead and get a 2nd Smile Just make sure you have a 2nd hide in there. They will most like use the same but the 2nd is good incase of fights or if for whatever reason they dont. Introduce them appropriately. As for a separate species, Isotopes are basically it.

That depends if you want to breed. Otherwise it doesn't really matter. If you want to breed go for the opposite sex and have a flat solid surface in the tank for them to mate on.

I forgot. You can also put springtails in there. They will also help clean up your tank.

It's the same except just take extra care that the conditions are right and if you have to separate scorpions.

They are little bugs. Here's a link to the wiki page for them. And here's a link to a place to buy cultures.
