I don't think it's as bad as you're making it sound -- emps CAN be submerged for quite a while without incident, and if they don't like a flooded burrow they tend to come to the surface.

As for the coco rotting, I'm not sure what's going on there -- possibly the decay of leftover foodstuffs and tankmates? Because I've sifted through coco fiber that had been sitting in the same tank for over a year, and it just felt like it was breaking down into a nice compost. It didn't stink or anything.

Hmm . . . probably lots of baby scorpion poo + leftover cricket bits + leftover tank bits. In an adult tank, with less poo and little to no leftovers, you can keep using the same substrate for years at a time.
