    Bought it as Phormictopus sp., never found out what it is.

    That's unfortunate, no breeding for him then. Great looking spider though, how large is he?

    The molt was 6.5", so I am guessing 6.75" - 7" now.

    Easily, phormic MMs can put on some impressive size on their final molts...an inch or more would not be uncommon.
