Is it better to keep them individually or communally

I have 4 of them together at the moment but not sure if this is the best option

Thanks

I had them all really fat and for some reason they have become skinny. Now i just found one dead or close to it. I think its that they are not eating for some reason. Have tried everything from crushed crickets and roaches to chopped mealworms.

Not sure what to do to get them to eat

Ummm, have you tried live food? Razz

Emps are communal. I have an adult, sub-adult(possibly 5-6i), and a juvenile(3-4i) in the same enclosure. And before that, I had a gravid female in there with them.

Yes, they run away from live food. Even the smallest crickets and they run for cover

Just leave the prey in there for a few days. If they die take them out and if they dont get eaten after 3 days or so also take them out. Emps can go a long time without eating especially if in premolt.
