Scorp Enclosure

Sooo...I recently had to treat my scorpion for mites and she was in a bare tank with just paper towels. It appears they are gone and I just set up her 15 gallon enclosure again. Substrate is coco/peat moss. It is nothing fancy,as emperors don't need anything fancy,but I like it.

She is currently in her feeding container (I feed her in a separate area,as crickets attract mites and if she leaves pieces of crickets around...well mites love that! In her feeding container,I can easily clean it and not risk losing cricket/food limbs in the substrate) and I am waiting for the substrate to dry out a bit as it is a bit too wet before I put her back in here...but at least you can see how it looks now.

BTW I finally (after months) named her. Her name is Pagan. I wasn't going to name her,but I was always just calling her "the scorpion" or "the scorp",so I decided she needed a name. Pagan has been sticking in my mind for weeks now,so that is her name.

It looks nice! IMO simple enclosures look a little nicer than super duper complicated ones.


Can you give them live plants? I used to have some in Millie's old cage for a few months before they died (I'm a notorious plant killer) and she seemed to like them. Her enclosure looked pretty similar.

In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

Jess - thanks! I am sure some live plants are safe,but I have such a terrible "brown thumb" and cannot keep them alive,so it would prolly just die.

And as I already said,she is currently in the feeder cage. New pics of her will come soon.
