2 emps need a 10 gallon tank with lots of hides and plenty of substrate to be happy and not fight with each other. Granted, often times, once they get use to each other, they will often share a burrow or hide, but when one is having a bad hair day, the other needs to have the room and a different place to hang out in until peace is resolved again.
Also, if you keep 2 or more together in a tank, make sure you proved 2 to 4 prey items for each of them so they donít fight over it.
Oh, BTW, the 10 gallon size is for 2 adult emps, scorplings donít need that much space.
