I've kept adults together with great success, absolutely no cannabalism. My 2 that I have left always share the same hide even.

Havn't had the opportunity to, yet ;). When mine pop I plan to keep a couple of them together and see how it goes.

IME they aren't too active. I see mine out of their hide about once every 3 days or so and they usually dont do much, they are still beautiful scorps though. ;)

I have two H. hottentotta scorplings in a single enclosure. I provided them with a driftwood hide. They are feeding well and have molted to 3rd instar. I have not observed any aggression towards each other, not even during molting. I also noticed that the like to huddle together. I guess I will separate them when they molt to 4th, only because the enclosure will become too small for them.

I have 2 H. h 1 H. judaicus & 1 A. amoreux in a 10 gal tank.
I ran out of tanks so i had to use it and its been working for over 2 motnhs.
Hottentottas are a very communa spp. so i guess you don't need that much of experience to keep Hottentotas together.
