I get the same question from everyone. there just pebbles that my bro brought from his work. Just rocks that we threw outside and i decided to get a few (washed them of course) to mix with the gravel part of my tank and in the waterdish to keep the crix from drowning, Before i would loose at least two of those a week cuz CRIX CANT SWIM.

my new "his" and "her" den's... want to get use to them not being so cuddly so it's easier to seperate them after (or before) she partuates

Anyone use his T cages for their scorps? If so, I'd love to see pics of your setups. Thanks! ~B

Here are some pics of my setups and enclosures after moving back to Borneo.

This species is very common here in Borneo, hence the large collection.

Heterometrus spinifer


Pandinus imperator


On a smaller shelf....
Lychas mucronatus Communal


Liocheles australasiae & 0.0.1 Hadogenes paucidens


Cheers & Best Regards

i went a lil crazy with the eco earth and may never see them again.hahaha
when one is feeling adventurous i can take the lid off and it will climb out onto my hand in the top right corner where their tree stump water bowl is.:D

Yea, really nice stuff. Question, I see a lot of really large rocks. I am always terrified that using them will result in a really bad day for a scorp if they should fall. any worries there? I use flowerpots and even silicone the branches/logs I use to the tank walls.
