PostSubject: Emps are fighting   9/7/2011, 5:39 pm

Got some new emps today along with 5 Holothele incei.

The emps were fighting pretty violently and were not afraid to use their stinger. They went pretty crazy and I felt like I had to separate them. What should I do about it? Do you think they will get used to eachother or should I let the female get settled before introducing the male to the enclosure? Every input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Pictures coming in my scorp thread tomorrow Smile

some say males are more territorial and some say females are.id redo the enclosure and put em both in there at the same time. let em both go through a bonding experience of "where the f are we?!,we need to work together".

i did that with my emps and they make burrows together and share em.
only once have i seen a fight i felt i had to intervene.i did that by throwing a couple of crickets at em and they both dived into one of the burrows they made together and attacked and shared the crickets trapped in the burrow.it was kinda cute,both the rear portions of their bodies were hanging out while they were munching.

hope it works for you like it did for me.

yeah you should always introduce into a tank together even if you already had one in you shoulf do as shinign says redo the tank so there is no territorial issues Smile

most will fight for a while but it normally calms down

If they have the room for it, one of them will flee. Just let them fight it out but keep an eye on them.

They were both introduced at the same time. It was pretty intimidating cus it looked like they wanted to kill eachother...

This is the enclosure with 4-5 premade hides.


I have fed them both one dubia half their size and will try again when they're done eating Smile

its sad you have to redo all that.can you get them emps a different enclosure and leave that masterpiece as is for something that would fit it more as is?

How come people thinks peat and bark is not for emps? xD
It's 95% peat and 5 % bark. It's damp and the humidity in the cage varies from 70-85%. Heat= 22-28 celsius. It's perfect for emps! Razz

Thanks for the compliments tho! Very Happy

aw but they looked cool

just meant you would need to keep putting stuff back all the time lol... mine constantly fill the water bowl up with substrate which annoys me loli also keep pinching substrate for other tanks so the level has gone down by a few inches lolz...considering it was like 10" high at the back it dont really matter lol Smile

I'm starting to think when I clean the tank next, I'm gonna add up to about 10" of substrate too, so there's plenty. But, you know, my girl never digs, she comes out when the heat lamp goes on and uses her "show" hides (the ones bought from the store).

You all remember she was kept on sand previously, do you think that's why she might not dig in her substrate?

No, not hijacking the thread, just curious since it came up LOL.
