I moved the scorplings to a 12x24x6 enclosure because they left the mother's back 2 days ago. The heater and temperature/humidity is good. How long before they begin to feed?

The temp and humidity seem perfectly fine. They will eat when they are hungry (obviously lol) but if they are ignoring the chopped up super worms try some small live food. The movement might stimulate them to eat. Try feeding them in a day or two and if they don't eat try the next day.

Here's the substrate from mommy's cage, which had to be sifted with a spoon. One buried scorplings was found, the smallest one. I swear I got a happy dance once he was released into the new cage!! Scorp sift1.jpg

When you need humidity in a cage with a screen on top of the whole thing, use semi or fully rigid plastic sheets to block off the correct area.

Also, a scorpling walking under my cellphone camera, looks healthy.
