Hey guys hope you're doing well Smile

I've recently decided to get back into keeping inverts. Several years ago I kept a G.Rosea, P.Cambridgei, A. Versicolor and a B.Smithi but I'm looking at Scorpions these days and will receive some shortly Very Happy

Also trying to convince my girlfriend to let me have a Scolopendra Hardwicki Wink

Look forward to getting know you guys.

Welcome back to the hobby mate Smile

To convince your girlfriend...

I'll strongly suggest to introduce inverts with lesser pairs of legs first, that's what i did, and it works!

And good luck Very Happy After some years of keeping scorpions and some Ts, I have still not been able to convince my wife on a pede.

Cheers guys, thanks for the welcome. Ha yeah fair one, although she has expressed an interest in the more colourful Ts.

I've got a H.Arizonensis, P.Cavimanus and H.Swammerdami on order. I couldn't help myself so I ordered three after several weeks of research Smile

I'll post some pics up once they arrive.

Ts usually have a pretty good WAF Smile so go and get some.

We're all waiting for those pics once your new additions arrive. Those are some great species to own.

Will do.

I just have a quick question about H.Arizonensis. The desert care sheet here recommends offering water every now and then but how often should I do this? I'm just wondering about causing mycosis.

Cheers.

Good question. To be exact, "every now and then" (detail of how much? and how? to read up at ASA desert scorpion caresheet) is only recommended for juvenile to sub-adult desert scorpions. (2.instar - 5.instar)

Due to their shorter molting interval, they are not so much bound by the concern of mycosis. For adult desert specimens, a small capful of water (with pebbles) filled once every 10-14 days will be fine Smile

Sorry mate I missed that bit on the care sheet - I need to read more carefully Smile

I also realised I'm steering this thread off track :S
