 New here, got some questions

I have done an exausting amount of research, and just want info on a couple of things. Is a 20 g long tank to large for a pair of P. imperator scorpions? All the studying I have done says not, but I just want to be double sure. How many inches do they grow before they stop moulting? Any experienced advice will be very appreciated!!

A 20 is ok, a bit large, but it will work. Just be sure to put a water dish at each end of the tank and at least 2 hides for each scorpion.
P. imperator reach an average adult size of 6 to 8 inches, after that, they donít really grow much more. They are pretty easy to care for. The only thing you really need to keep in mind is that they like it hot and humid but *do* need good ventilation also.
They are able to climb porus surfaces and can use their claws to pull themselves up so make sure that there is nothing in the tank that can enable them to climb up on the lid.
