They should be fine to take down a small mealworm at that size Phil.

as long as they attack them fast...i really don't like the worms disappearing in 20 secs as they burrow so fast.

They'll dig em up in time. Don't worry about borrowing mealies, the T's can sense their vibrations and will get to them when they want to.

At that size they could take a large cricket without breaking sweat.
These grow very slowly and are probably a year old already at 5cm.

ya, but i find it a bit irritating to wait a long time for it to be eaten. i've waited on a few occasions and each time the worm hatched into a beetle. since then i've stopped leaving the worm in there. if it's not eaten a couple times after i dig out the half burrowed ones, it's going back into the container.
