Hi Reuben, feed it pin head crickets. Leave the baby on the mothers back, when it molts and starts to run around on it's own, then separate the baby from mother. Do NOT give it a water dish. Mist the enclosure with a spray bottle not the scorpion itself. Use coconut fiber for substrate (comes in a compressed brick, just add warm water then it expands) make it damp. Give it a place to hide. It's best to know these things BEFORE you get an animal.
