Post by exocet77 on Fri Jun 27, 2014 6:11 am

Just took a look in my tank and found a great surprise! A back full of babies!!

So I have know idea how to care for her and the babies. I'm fairly new to the hobby to begin with.

There is currently 5 scorpions total in my setup. Should I take the mother out and put her somewhere else. She has been battling it out with the other scorpions. There's no way I can gaurentee she is feeding as well. 


Advice??

First off, congratulations on the new babies! They are a healthy looking bunch of little buggers. As for what to do from here on out i would leave the mother scorp in the tank, and remove the other scorps to help keep her stress low. Other than that i am sorry that i don't have more info for you, but like i said i'm no expert and, i don't want to give you bad advice. If it were me I would just go online and do some research on your species of scorp to find out what temps, and humidity they need to thrive. Congrats again! Smile  It is always nice to see little ones.

Congrats exocet77! That's one lovely brood you have there Smile

Shifty physco had good consideration about keeping the stress level low.

My personal view: It could be easier to move the scorpion mum to an isolated "brooding enclosure" as compared to moving four other scorpions which were staying in the current tank. Reason being, during the attempt to shift the other 'residents', they are also possibilities that they might run straight into to the scorpion mum (while trying to run away from you) This could also cause stress. Also, as seen from the picture, I would be wary of the "Giant" rock slates which might not be "baby friendly" when the 2 .instars starts to dismount from their mom's back. If you decide to remove the 4 other scorpions, I will suggest you to remove these slates as well.

If you decide to move the scorpion mum, I would suggest the following steps:

1. Prepare a simple brooding enclosure and place it right beside the current tank (to reduce the transport distance)
2. While the scorpion mum is on a large piece of slate, gentle and firmly remove the whole "platform" into the brooding enclosure. Well this action will most likely better executed with hands and not tongs, for the good grip. Wear gloves if you feel safer.
