Well I am currently going to try and see how many I can communally keep in a 10 gal. Ill keep you guys updated. I think the number will be about 10. I have numerous hides everywhere. They were all just born.

I might move them all into a 20 gallon in the future

I keep 9 in a 10 gallon tank plus one whip scorpion. The depth of my substrate is about 8-9 inches. they all made tunnels under the substrate :)

Nev,

I hope the scorpions leave your whip scorpion alone, because they might consider it fast food at some time....

Cheers, Michiel

I had 19 juvenile Emps in a terrarium 50 cm x 25 cm x 30 cm (w x h x d), 37.5 liters (9.9 US gallons) (see: http://johnbokma.com/mexit/2008/03/20/pandinus-imperator-terrarium.html ) for over 2 years. I lost a few during a cold spell, not sure how many there are left. I didn't even know I had 19 since only about 6 were visible at a time. Until I saw none, and checked out the substrate:



So there might have even been more than 19... (I lost one after digging them up, not sure if it accidentally got hurt or that it was bound do die anyway.)
