Just exactly how important is the temperature
of the set up for a molt?
It's about 70F in my house most of the time,
the room that my T's live in is about 72F.
I have a G. rosea, A. Seemanni, and A. Moderatum.
(the rosie is almost 3 inches and the others are
about 2 inches) :)

I think the rosea and the moderatum will be fine at those temps, but the seemani might feel "more at home" with slightly warmer temps such as 75-85 degrees. The temps you have them at right now are fine for their well being, but all three will grow more quickly with higher temps.

Thanks for the reply:)

I was begining to wonder because my Rosie is
not eating as much as normal and she is quite
dark.(molting?) SO, if I boost the temp. a little it will happen sooner:?
