My current set up for my 8 Asian forest scorpions and my 2 baby bark scorpions. I'm fairly new to scorpions. Anyone have any tips? How often should I feed the Asian forest Scorpions?

What are the dimensions of that enclosure for your Heterometrus sp.? Are you keeping them communally? Individually? What instar are they, if you don't know, how big are they and what combination of genders do you have mixed in the community (If you're keeping them communally)? Feeding schedule depends on if they are still young and if they are being kept communally.

What kind of bark scorpions are they? How big are they? Again, what are the dimensions of that container? That enclosure looks too big and bare for just two scorplings. Also, if those scorpions are together it would be advised to keep them separated in individual deli cups.

Also, the rocks in the water dish are unnecessary (noob mistake I made as well). They are just more breeding surface for bacteria.

The dimensions for the Asian Forest Scorpion Container- 38 cm wide 47 cm long 25 cm deep. They were wild caught so I don't know what instar they are. Most of them are not very big but I don't know enough to know how big/small they get. I keep them communally, with slightly more males then females (probably about 5 males and 3 females).

I can't find the bark scorpion species but I found them here in Thailand. I will separate them soon and take the rocks out of the water dish.

Thanks!

Without knowing how big they are (any kind of measurement will due, from it's mouth to tip of tail) I can't say whether the container is big enough for all eight of them. It looks really nice though. Did you catch those Heterometrus yourself too?

If you share a pic of those bark scorpions we would help i.d them (your other eight afs too).

Thanks! I'm pretty sure that the tank is big enough for all of them (and more if I had them) and I am giving a few away soon so they will have even more space. I've made sure to include lots of hides for them in the tank as well. I did catch the AFS as well as the bark scorpions (I caught a mother who gave birth).

Here are the best pics I have of them.

Thanks!
