I saw my 1/2" O. Schoedtei sling yesterday, it's abdomen was very dark and shiny, so I'm expecting a moult at any time, the problem being I can't see it, what can I do to make sure the impending moult goes successfully, this is my first Omothymus sp. Any advice would be gratefully received and thanks in advance.

Generally, it will throw the molt out very shortly after finishing. Within a couple days at most. Nothing to do but wait.

Finally moulted last night, saw the translucent freshly moulted T at around 2 am,, had a feeling it was going to, my gut was correct, this morning at 8am the T's chitin has started to harden.
