Hey guys!

Totally missed you :O
Sorry about my absence but my old scorpion had passed, and I didnt feel right being on the forum since I was still new. However! I had purchased two 4i Pandinum Imperator from a member of this forum, and they are alive and well!

The shipping took from monday until today. They are SO much smaller than my old scorpion. He/she was a juvenile. Had a cream telson. These have white ones! :O

I have a few questions though. When should I give them their first meal, is my 30gal tank I had for my old scorp too big, and should I be worried about a sting?

I know emps normally have a mild sting, but I assumed thats because of their large size, and pincer size. These are still babies so would their venom be more potent?

I know the rule of thumb is the smaller the more dangerous, but as I am still new I'm not sure if that only applies to fully grown, or babies as well.

Again sorry for disappearing!

Feed them tomorrow, and you don't need to worry about the sting. Emps are always mild.

thanks Street :3
how about the 30 gal aquarium?
i was told it would be way too big for them.

i figured since I use cricket tongs to hand them their prey/pull off a leg it wouldnt make it too hard for them to get their food

I'd just stick them in some tupperware for now. Drill some holes for ventilation. You can keep the tupperware in the 30 gal if you want to though.

Yeah that will work. Maybe try to find a taller one though. If you want to use their containers as hides go for it.

would it be safe to house them both in the same thing or should i use two separate containers?
