so i just got 3 scorpions at a swap meet 3 weeks ago, i got 2 females and a male..the guy had all his scorpions on a 20gal tank, one of the females i got was the biggest scorpion in his tank, he believes that that female is gravid, he told me he breeds his reptiles but he gets his inverts from "a guy" so he couldnt be 100% sure lol so anyway, i keep my scorpions on a 20gal tank with 5-6" of substrate..here's the problem though, i rarely see my scorpions now..they made their own burrows and they're just hiding all the time..i know that scorpions have a long gestation, but im worried that if that female scorpion is in fact gravid, that i might not see her give birth, i read that mother scorpions become really aggresive, and i dont want her killing the other scorpions..should i transfer her now to a different tank? or should i wait till i see her with the baby scorpions on her back? should i put less substrate and just put a bunch of hides so i can check up on them easier? what are your techniques/tips on breeding emperor scorpions? i've read a bunch of articles about breeding emperor scorpions, but they were all very vague lol..and none of them answered my questions lol any tips from some of the pro scorpion keepers here would be very much appreciated!
