I have one emp and I just bought two more. My question is how close in size do they need to be to avoide canabalism. My first emp is good sized my 2nd is only a little smaller but my third is still pretty small.

There is always the risk of cannibalism during molts. If one of your scorps is significantly smaller than the other ones, it may be a good idea to separate it, particularly if it's approaching a molt.

Should be fine then, just keep an eye out when the smaller individual is approaching a molt.

u could put a divider in but i dont know anyone who has ever done that before, well one of my emps is like twice as small as my other emps, u cant see him in my picture becuase hes burried in the dirt but a peice of his stinger is sticking out of the dirt, hes alot smaller than all my other emps, but i never had any problems, all my emps stay in the same burrow together.... like i said hes alot smaller he still uses his stinger on the crickets and my bigger emps dont do that...
