    How do I plump him? Just feed him more?

    'Him'. 'He'. Everywhere on the thread.

    Why, on the other hand, judging by the pic posted, to me looks like a 0.1 specimen of the former H.lividum now C.lividus? :)

    I mean, maybe at almost 40 my eyes seriously now needs a good eye-Doc check, but 1.0 aren't so blue like 0.1 are.

    Here, male on the right... not that blue, to me v

    This looks to be female to me. Similar colouring to my girl and she's about the same size. Though a hell of a lot less beaten up.

    I'm hoping for your sake that this isn't something going on for the T that we can't see. If it is indeed female then it should have a lot more life left in it.

    Try cranking the humidity and forcing a molt by feeding.

    And on the plus side......At least you get to see her for a while before she perks up and disappears underground forever.

    Check my thread to see my girl Venus

    until a male has his ultimate molt....males and females will look pretty much the same.
