Right I bought this h. swammi in december, about 1"

And it is still 1"! Neutral

I am keeping like my other hets. and they are all thriving, but this lill' pain in the bottom is being awkward.
It does eat, not as often as I would like but it's pretty active. But not anywhere near moulting size yet, plump but no where near ready for next instar.
It's in a 6" critter keeper with 2" of substrate (coir) water bowl and a load of moss for cover (covers about 1/3 of the surface area). Humidity is about 70ish % and temp varies between 27-28 degrees C during the day. and about 20 on a night.

Any idea's on why it's being awkward? Does it need to be a little dryer? I'm puzzled!
Do they do better in groups when they are young? Hmmm...!!!!

He sounds just like my Het sp. Hasn't molted since I bought him back in... like a year or something ago.

well I haven't seen it eat, but it obviously has, I had it out earlier for closer inspection and was looking a little rounder, and the crickets were missing from the enclosure Smile

I suppose I am just used to fast growing hets!
