PostSubject: What do I need for these scorps?   6/1/2008, 2:54 pm

Hey,

Could someone give me a quick rundown on what I would need for an Rhopalurus junceus and a Hadrurus spadix (tank, heat source, etcetera) and maybe a preferred care sheet, too, please?

Thank you.

spadix: sand, mostly something that it can make caves and stuff off, then some thing to hide under, u-bark or something, heat around 25-27c, waterdish onces a week, good ventilation, no moisture in the tank, 30x30x20cm is enouch for 1 spicemen.

hmm something like that Very Happy

Actually, I just found that same caresheet for the R. Junceus while Googling (=

So those dimensions you gave me are about as big as a 5 gallon, correct?

Thanks alien

Oh, okay. I'm pretty sure those dimensions equal out to a 5 gallon tank.

I'll probably be using plastic shoe boxes for the R. junceus' and the B. jacksoni's.

Part that sucks though is the 5 gallons are more expensive than the 10's because they make less of them.

I'm assuming that I need a glass tank because of it being a desert species and requiring a heat source. My room is almost always around 75-80F.

That's the dude I was waiting for... but sooner Razz

I might just go with the 10 GAL but it's going to be twice as much when I get the substrate scratch

Do H. spadix's actually require a heat lamp?

It's alright, Eddy. You gotta do what you have to do. I appreciate any of your help regardless of it's size or time Smile

1/4 peat and 3/4 sand, right?

What about a heat lamp?

Well the sand is meant for the Hadrurus, but you can buy peat at home depot as well and save money. I would use 100 percent sand wet it and make sure it's packed down (even packed down it should be about 5 inches deep) and let it sun bake for a few days. If you have some money to waste buy some escavator sand from petco and mix it with sand it should be one part escavator sand and 2 parts regular sand. If you only use escavator sand it gets really hard and they wont burrow.

So should I pack it into the 10 GAL, wet it down, pack it, then let it dry? Or should I do it while it's outside of the 10 GAL?

What about a heat lamp?

Thanks, Eddy.

Btw, I'm going out to cash my check so I can get the suppliese for these buggers before I order them from Adam:
0.0.1 Rhopalurus junceus
0.0.1 Hadrurus spadix
0.0.4 Babycurus jacksoni (2-3i)
0.0.1 Scolopendra subspinipes de haani

Big bag of 100% peat, sand, some plastic shoe boxes, cork/bark, setup for the H. spadix--I think I'll be set!

Actually, Adam at AJ Exotics is out of the H. spadix's and R. junceus', so I'm going with a Bothriurus sp. and pair of mature Emps.

Any info on the Bothriurus sp.? Caresheet maybe?

Thanks Very Happy
