Hey mate, I can't comment on this species but I have had good expiriences keeping emp scorps together, equally I have had a few accidents along the way too, my first ever breeding pair kind of had a domestic and one of them died, I am not sure what the trick is of keeping them succesfully together, or what I done right or wrong in both cases, I expect space would have something to do with that, the more space their is, the less chance their is would be of them causing each other distress? a few hides that kind of thing.

Lovely scorpion btw.

thanks ive got 7 of them at the moment but only 3 are adult.

im toying with the idea of getting a big tank for the adults just unsure as they are more aggressive than emps, i have put 2 of them together for half hour of so trying to get them to mate anf there was no fighting between them.
im in no rush to do this as their fine in their own 9ltr rubs for now
