    I'm in the same boat. I have 3 females with full broods going, and one with 2 babies.
    Brood A is completely dispersed and cupped.
    Brood B, 8 came off during maintenance and died in cups. Their siblings are now coming off on their own, 10 days later.
    Brood C, a good week away.
    Brood D (2) No idea. I left her in with the community..

    Not sure what to do with 60 + scorplings... I do want to keep them alive , perhaps give them to friends locally..
    I have 3-4 pinheads in each of the cups. no idea if they are eating them ,hard to tell at this point. They are dam small... Dime sized

    Fertile Mertiles it sounds like XD Best of luck with all those babies. I mean you could sell them too and give some away as freebies.

    Edited to add:
    You could also wholesale them too.

    That's how it was with my C. gracilis. They started breeding to the point I had to remove all of the males out of their communal tank. It was forever love in the air in their tank :D

    OK quick question but totally off subject ..how do you know when a male enters maturity?

    @darkness975 might be able to answer that question. Truthfully, I'm not sure.

    You will see them attempting to court the females in the tank. If a female is already gravid or not interested she will flick him away.

    If you are trying to induce breeding make sure you have a set up where the male can deposit his spermatophore.

    Also, please don't breed siblings. It's not good for the gene pool.
