For general husbandry, you may refer to my Desert scorpion caresheet:
http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/t7653-asa-desert-scorpions-caresheet

The only thing to note that substrate-wise, i would recommend using either full coco-peat or at least mixture of 70/30 coco-peat/sand. Always try to maintain at least 1/3 of the substrate surface slightly moist.

A shallow water dish will be good for 5.instar onwards.

Deco, as usual, not really needed but up to the keeper's preference to keep the outlook naturalistic.

It's good to have a hide though, provide a piece of bark/slate which is at least 2 times the scorpion's full length.

What are the instar you are getting them at?

If your dealer is refering to 3-4cm for full length (inclusive of tail), it should be around 3-4.instar.

For raising 0.0.5 specimen up for breeding, on the safer bet i would say yes, keep them separated untill they are adults.

No worries. They're considered the "hardier" specimens among semi shrub/desert scorpions. You should be fine raising them. If there're questions, just ask Smile

With that size enclosure and enough hides you can have 10+ inside there.
