Hello everyone, I have recently changed the substrate in my vivarium to be this coconut fiber, its a lot like dirt, and my scorpions (I have three now) have been getting in the water dish then becoming incredibly dirty, and dragging lots of dirt around with them, I am wondering if perhaps the substrate I picked is unhealthy for them.

coconut fiber substrate is perfect for them.

make sure its moist and well packed down , this way they will be able to make a burrow.

They probably need more humidity just spray daily or when needed to keep it around 70%-80% relative humidity. I keep it this way in my tank and I never see them even get close to the water dish.
