I was wondering if there are color morphs for H. paucidens?

Searched old threads but didn't come up with anything.

I just got an adult male and it has a subdued, dull yellowish brown banding.



On the other hand, the adult female I have has the olive banding which gives the species its common name. Too bad the flash washed out much of the color.



Here is a shot of the pair. I put them in a 35 gal. tank left over from my cichlid hobby days. :D

Nice scorps! They do have a color difference.

Is your substrate dry?

yep, quite dry.

and the tank is outdoors (albeit under a shaded area of the house) with no cover so humidity is very low.
