They act tough but when it comes down to it they dont fight

That's awesome! It kind of looks like a mugging in process. :)

No not at all i love my pets that's the only fight any of them got into interesting to watch it though none of them got hurt it's the only time I've seen them fight but we help people out doing scorpion removal and we kept some that we didnt release and that video was from the same night they were caught but 29 scorpions will cause trouble lol

A three second clip is hardly a definitive assertion of their overall or potential future interaction with one another.

They look like Hadrurus arizonensis

You seen a 3 second clip I've seen over a year of hours upon days upon months of interacting with them do to my curiosity and my efforts at awesome enclosures plus all the clean up after th err m which hz constant so there is where I get my belief that they act tough sometimes but dont fight

And yes they are hadrurus arizonensis in this clip I'm looking forward and hoping to spend another 18 years or so interacting with them

I didnt mean that coexistence is never possible. But cannibalism is always a threat. Even among C. sculpturatus which are famous for being "communal."

I've seen specimens live together for weeks, months, even years then suddenly one day get eaten by their neighbor.

Feeding them a lot is one thing too combat cannibalism.
Enough space is just as important, don't let it get too crowded in relation to enclosure size and amount of hiding spots.
Personally i would also remove any gravid female because scorplings are considered food for any other scorpion.
When one does start eating his friends, it might not be such a big problem since there might be several fresh specimens living in @Scorpion death's backyard anyway (?)

As long as there's plenty of insect prey and lots of roosting spots, the bark scorpions shouldn't start eating each other! As for the desert hairies... hopefully they get get along for years to come!

The desert hairys do get along and even like to sleep together and the barks have more than enough hiding spots their enclosure is very complex also it's almost that time of year they all come back out this season were going to get so many more we have been collecting tanks of all sizes to hold the ample numbers to come
