    Sorry, that wasn't all that specific was it? Definitely struggling with words without the coffee today lol :dead:. I've had a couple species in the past that were too small, so I'd mortally wound a roach (usually tear it in half so it's an appropriate size) and feed those to the slings. Worked incredibly well with my Liocheles and some of the arboreal buthids. Roach still twitches enough to be interesting so the scorps will usually go for them. One of my Liocheles got greedy after a couple molts and would grab a half in each claw before running off to eat.

    no worries i figured thats what ya meant by it. Ive had a colony of lateralis for awhile so even though its rough trying to find all the 1 day olds in the tub to use for feeders i never had to rip them apart and feed that way

    You have really beautiful Uroplectes. So much different from mine and I have some of the sames species ;)
    I recently had 60 little olivaceus, all from the same mom. She gave me two broods so far.

    Thanks
    They do actually look blue under the right light.

    Here is a picture of the mother with her first brood:

    She had about 40+ in this brood and dropped a second brood about 3-4 months later
