    Hey guys, I'm going to be getting 3 Arizona Bark scorpions about 1/2 inch in size in a few days, can you tell me how to set up the cage so I can keep them healthy?also are they communal?

    Keep on the drier side, a vertical piece of bark or cork to rest on and that's about it. They can be kept communally with plenty of hiding spots and food.

    It might be best to raise them up until mature before trying a communal with them as they are susceptible to cannibalism at young instars
    Make sure to mist 1 wall or side of their tank 1-2 per week because they do tend to need more moisture at young instars

    I got them set up in plastic containers like these ones, but more importantly, are they communal? They lived in a jar together apparently with the last owner and i didn't want them to eat each other so i seperated them

    Adults can live together without any problems, but the young will definitely eat each other if there isn't tons of food in with them. I don't know how well that decoration will work for them, I'll be curious to see how they like it!
