Please can someone ID this scorpion, when it's under a my bulb in my tank, the claws and sting go red, i can't get a picture up as my camera isn't working but when i bought it it was labelled Asian Forest Scorpion. Its a Heterometrus but it's super aggressive, i'll open the cage and just one bang it's in threat posture. The picture will be up soon.

Here is a link that you might find useful. Once you get a picture up I'll try to ID it, but from your description, it's impossible to tell what species it is.

Welcome to the forum by the way.

Copy the IMG code and paste it here.
You can also host pics by clicking the "host an image" symbol in the reply box.
Here are your pics: (I did not host them, I just copied the code from your photobucket.)

It might be H. spinifer or H. longimanus, but I'm not sure. Clear pics of the chela (claws) and the carapace (head) would be helpful.

You have to be a member for 7 days before you post any pics. you could send Scorpion19981000 a personal message with the link for the pic in it. And then they can post it for you.

I completely forgot about that. I'll post the link.

Here is the link: http://s1056.photobucket.com/albums/t365/ChileRose97/

ArachnoEvans' Pics:
 

@ ArachnoEvans--- I'm thinking it's a H. spinifer. (Perhaps a H. petersii, but most likely H. spinifer.)

Do you know the sex of your scorpion? If you don't, look at the underside of the scorpion. Because it's a Heterometrus species, if it's a male the pectines will be larger than that of a female. If your not sure, then post a pic of the pectines.
Also, the substrate in your pics looks too dry, try pouring some water on the substrate.

If your not sure of the sex, you can always post a pic (Of the pectines.) and we will sex it for you.

I think it's a male as it paces around the tank at night banging against the glass and the pectines are long

If you post a pic of the pectines and operculum, we can sex it for you.
