Hi,

I have a Versicolour thats just maulted yesterday, she was about half inch legspan, she looks much bigger already.

How soon after the mault should I offer her food?

Funnily enough I also have a Smithi and she maulted yesterday right after the versi, its like they are in synch lol, I will give her a few days before offering her food, shes now about 6" legspan, hope she cheers up now, not seemed too happy for the last few weeks.

Thanks guys

Hey congrats on the successful molts!

For the A.versicolor I would wait around 5 days. You can try earlier if you want, like around 3 days, but make sure to remove the prey item if it is not eaten within the first few minutes.

Give your smithi about 2 weeks, since she is 6".

Thanks for the reply.

I was so happy they both molted on the same day and didnt have any problems.
