    well in preperation for getting a scorp, i want to know a few things about criclets.

    i am just going to release them into the tank when my scorp needs feeding (if i can) but how do i stop them establishing themselves?
    and how long will the crix live if fed on a healthy diet and kept damp free?

    how about only putting as many crickets in as the scorp will eat.
    and making sure there are no nooks an crannies that it can get to,

    i help baby scorps eat btw, just guide the cricket past the scorp and he will catch it.
    unless you want to see it hunt

    Crickets can live a week or two after reaching adulthood.

    I have too many scorpions to bother with feeding each of them separately and therefore just throw on the weeks allotment at one time.

    I do go back a few days later to remove any dead one as they will attract mites. Dead crickets also have quite a foul smell and decay rapidly.

    I'd say 3-5 crickets of the size you described. The scorpions you have are probably capable of taking larger crickets without a problem though.
