I just received my newest T.
A Brachypelma Emilia sling, roughly 1.5"
It molted in transit, and is alive but seems weak. I've had her for about 5 days in a small enclosure w a water dish, and about 3" of substrate.
Curious when, and what to feed her, as I want her healthy

Give it a week if just molted. I’d say it could handle a small cricket.

There is no rush to feed. Just make sure that the fangs are jet black. If it's 1.5 inches DLS, I would personally wait 10-14 days just to be sure that it's completely hardened. Right after a molt, water is more important than food.

At that size I feed after a week. Does it have a hide?

Halfgrown crickets, dubia nymphs or mealworms are a few options

At that size I feed 5 days after moulting.

If you only have larger prey then pre-kill or dice one of those up. I usually use appropriately sized mealworms or roach nymphs
