A ten gallon aquarium or terrarium is required with an under-tank heat pad on one side of the tank. The habitat needs a shallow water dish as well as a hiding area. If multiple scorpions are in a tank, multiple hide areas should be provided. The substrate should be 3-4 inches deep. The scorpion's diet is easily maintained with gut-loaded crickets or mealworms.
