Welcome! Nice-looking emp you've got, but you can take out the water gel -- it's difficult for scorpions to drink from, and it's REALLY hard to drown an emp. Standing water is fine.

Oh, now go post a sting report. Smile

thanks, its a basic set up, i might replace the plants with plastic ones, cuz the live ones seem to tae u alot of room cuza the roots, cnt make it out in the pic but he has managed to dig a tunnel under the cork n a pit is under it aswell, altho he duznt do the typical lazy emp thing of waiting he actually hunts which shocked me then once he gets it he goes straight under the cork n eats in peace lol

When I was using Cricket Drink my Emp would sit on it a lot. My guess is that I didn't provide enough humidity for him at the time. I don't think they have the right organs/parts to take in that stuff. I've also read reports of Emps staying underwater for more than 10 minutes (maybe even hours).

Funny how I saw on VideoJug a video explaining how to care for Emperor scorpions and it said to use the silica gel. Here it is: http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-care-for-emperor-scorpions

lol i have seen that video, but i have to say tha i think there trying to encourage people to buy the gel i mean its about 5.00 for a 480g tub here so they can make good money and all it is is gellatine u could make your own very very easily, but yeah i rated it so lowly cuz nothing i have was interested i tried crix with it i gave em water at one end n gel at other they kinda ignored the gel plus personally i prefer feeding moist foods to crix instead of water obviously i have water avaialble but there greedy lol
