Best Communal Scorpion species

    Looking for a communal species of scorpion. I don't mind if they are desert, tropical, or inbetween. I'm just looking for the lowest chance of incidents between them. Looking to house them in either a 40B or a 20L. Dealt with "hot" scorpions before so that isn't an issue either. Thanks for taking the time -Ryan

    Consider Centruroides hentzi. I really dig them.
    Another overlooked communal that are fantastic are Uroctonus mordax.

    I keep 5 7i P.Transvaalicus (03.02.00) & 4 7i H,Jayakari (02.02.00) in a communal set-up without any problems. Just keep on feeding them and put some hides, You can check my gallery for some pictures. :)

    All Orthochirus species and most Uroplectes species are ideal for a communal setup.

    I just got 6 C Hentzi & they are awesome. They’re 3/4”-1”. I put them in a deep blue 5 gallon with a bunch of cork for them to climb on. They are a communal species and do great together. I’ll try and post pics later
