 Friends untill the end...?

Hey i know a mating pair of scorpians can fit into a 10 gallon tank but i was wandering if 2 males or 2 females could fit in a 10 gallon. Will they fight? I want 2 but my mom doesnt want scorplings. So will 2 scorpians of the same gender remain frineds or will they kill each other?

Hmmm, I donít know about same gender. Now 4 in a 10 gallon would be a bit tight, a 15 or 20 would probably be better for 4.

i didnt mean 4 in a 10 gallon i meant 2 of EITHER 2 males OR 2 females not both lol. Metz i know you have a lot of experience so do you think the same gender thing will work out or should i just get one?

My experience with scorpions is by far inferior to my experience with tarantulas. I have never kept emps of the same sex together and, although Iím sure this question has been asked before, I donít recall whether or not itís ok. Hopefully BrainS will pop back in here. He should be able to give you a much better idea. HE"S the scorpion king.

Not that i class myself anywhere nearly as experienced as Metz ,all the info i have read on my Scorpion (Pandinus Imperator)Emperor is that they can be housed in 2s or 3s or more of Sim sized animals but that fights will occur over the same food item and your scorp could get hurt or worst still become lunch so it is really up to you weather you take the risk or not good luck
