Hi there Imachiiine That's a cool little brood you have. Congrats. For the health and well being of your babies I feel the need to point a few things.

1. Your tank seems very dry and your scorpion is a AFS so it requires a more humid environment.Think 70-80 % humidity.
2. Your substrate is coco bark which isn't great at holding humidity and doesn't allow your scorpion to dig a hide. Which she desperately wants to do as it's how they feel safe and secure.
3. I don't see from this picture any way for her to hide from the light of day which scorpions hate. keeping them without a hide is very stressful.
4. I also don't see from this photo a water dish. Your scorpion needs water to live. it doesn't have to be deep or fancy just an open source of water.

Please take a look at this link if you haven't already.

I hope this helps and good luck with your babies. and Welcome to ASA.

hi Yames. thanks for your input its greatly appreciated! she's actually resting on the water dish and there is a sponge inside holding water, its the dish that came from the store. do you suggest a different kind of dish? i do have a skull (decor) on the right side of the tank she usually hides in. its not a very big tank but i will buy a new one soon. i will so to humidify the tank can i use a spray bottle and mist spray some water or how exactly would i humidify the tank? i'll look at the care sheet too. thanks again!

I'm so glad to hear that you have water for her. You don't really need the sponge they drink from open bowls. As long as you see a little puddle of water any bowl dish you use should work fine. If you spray down the substrate a bunch lets say half the tank then partly cover it so the humidity traps it would help. You really don't need a bigger tank unless of course you plan on housing multiple scorpions.

Agree with Yames.

Asian forest scorpions are usually very hardy. The very basic requirements are: well dampened coco peat subatrate, warm room temperature and good ventilation for the enclosure.

Gd luck iMachiiine, feel free to ask questions.
