Raising Emps


Jan 30, 2007
Hi all.

I'm fairly new here but i have been lurking for quite some time getting lots of great info. But i wanted some input on the raising of emperors. Do dietary habits affect how the emperor grows? Per se if a juvenile was well fed, do they become larger adults and do things like their diet effect their physical qualities such as their color as an adult? Or are those aspects genetically predetermined? Anyhow, help would be appreciated.

Well, generally: the more you feed it, the more it grows. I don't think the colour depends any on diet. I'm pretty sure that's based on the parent's colouring.

I'm no expert, but I doubt you can purposely change a scorp's colour and size except by underfeeding it, but don't do that!

the diet will dictate how large they are when adult, but not to a massive degree. Their colur is reliant on mummy and dady, but i have also dicoverd the sub you use can effect it.
