my tiny jumping spider (unknown species) molted last night. It hasn't eaten for several days. It's abdomen looks so small now! I want to feed it today, but does it need more time to recover?
By tiny I mean less than an eighth of an inch.

Just put the prey in there for a few hours. If the spider doesn't attack it in this time, take it out. Keep doing this until it eats.

Make sure it is not dehydrated before you feed it, using sun light & good ventilation to boost its appetite and make sure the enclosure is not too big or the food size, 1/3 of it's body length is just right
