Sorry to bother you all again and open a new topic but i thought i'd put a few pics of my set up on so i can get your opinions Smile

I managed to get a photo (still blurry but a bit better than other pics i have put on different posts) of my emp burrowing
under a rock.

Please let me know what you think and what i can do to improve it!

Looking good. If you want you can add a few plants, plastic or real ones.

Thank you Smile I'm considering getting some ferns for the tank (real ones) to "jazz" it up a little Smile
is this a good idea? and are there any other plants you recommend?

Remember to make sure that the plants you use need very little UV rays.
Ferns could probably work as they are usually found in the undergrowth but I have never used them myself. I usually use what is called creepers in my enclosures, they create a nice blanket effect, same as moss, but also gives a bit of height.

Never put a heat mat or pad under a scorp enclosure.

I got confused with reptiles XD I know scorps dig tunnels to stay cool so the heat should not be where they go to cool down but over the surface. I stand corrected Razz

The heat mat is at the back behind the moss, It's a little bit slanted so i need to fix that but it's there Smile I also have a lamp to heat it up too because the heat mat the pet shop guy gave me is too big and it doesn't fit on nicely. He told me to put it underneath but i knew to ignore that Very Happy

Thanks everyone! I am getting a bigger glass tank soon so I'll definitely use some of your ideas
in the bigger tank when i have more room to make it look really natural Smile possibly getting another emp to go in with him as well.

Errm just for reassurance... this is a creeper isn't it??



Or is it something completely different? thanx

Pothos plants require very little light as well.
