hi, so im wondering why my scorpion hasnt eaten in about 4 days. hes older(red tipped stinger) not sure how old tho. i thought maybe it was cuz hes trying to acclimate itself to the new tank and enviroment i have him in. its about a 20g tank. the coconut fiber ground is moist. he got 1 big hide and water bowl. the tank is hot since its about 90 degrees here daily, i didnt think i need a heater. i keep it humid by putting plastic wrap over the top of the tank and mist it with a spray bottle every now and again. although at night it gets cooler maybe around 70 maybe low 80s which i thought wasnt bad for him. but his usual behavior is to just mope around and chill..lol. i put large crickets in the tank and he hasnt touched em. i even cut off the legs on one of the crickets incase its hard to catch. any suggestions?
