How big would you guess it will be?

    My L. parahybana just molted in early June. The molting mat it made was about half the width of the tank. :eek: At that time it made a huge size jump to be around half as wide as the 5 gal aquarium tank it lives in. I only feed it one mature male Dubia a week (so not powerfeeding, right?)

    It went into premolt 10 days ago, over the weekend it built a molting mat that spans the tank from side to side. It flipped over sometime between 8 and 11 am this morning.

    Any guesses on how big it will be this time?

    No idea but you should put it in a bigger habitat. I have mine in a 20 gallon tank and other keepers I know do the same. It allows the T plenty of room to move, make a home and molt since they can get quite big.

    It should be big enough to go to a 20 gallon fine. I transferred mine when it was only 2" which allowed it to make a great home for itself.
