Im really new in this hobby so anybody can tell me when can I feed it again??? I have heard that it might stress the scorp when fed after molting. it had only started ignoring the food last week. I just found out it molted this morning. I only fed it once a week. Any inputs??? thanx

I'd wait a few days before feeding it again, let it harden up again.

I would suggest getting rid of the gravel substrate. Use potting soil or even better coco fiber.

I have a dozen or so, the ones I have took a week or even two before they were ready to eat. You will know, they will avoid moving things if they aren't ready to eat. Like was mentioned, I'd also use coco fiber, or at least I would add it while keeping the gravel.
