Hi There

I dont keep scorpions at all, but I do know that Emperors are probably the most widely kept scorpions in the hobby. You could see them as the Corn snakes of the scorpion hobby.

Hence there is tons of information on keeping and breeding them on the net. Just look around a bit and you're sure to find what you're after.

Here are two basic, but comprehensive care sheets which should answer most of your questions:

Hey there PM VIPER

I know this thread is a bit old, but could you please do me a favour and post pics of your scorps? It seems there's have been a ton of ''emperors'' imported that arent in fact P. imperator.

I picked up 5 of them anyway as they are still cool... keen to see your response
