I don't know how you would find that out, but I do know that you shouldn't keep flat rocks together unless you have plenty of hides.

This is true but he may have a different turn out if its a sub adult and with two females....Tho the females tend to eat the males after mating, you best just keep an eye out for a bit. This genus grows at a very slow rate so its very difficult to tell. The best i can say is perhaps by the length of the tail. Or thats how i look at it at least. Mine is a little bit more than his body length when its straight out so i figure hes about full size. Perhaps one more molt at that. Other than that i have no clue on how to age them.

The metasoma is an idication of what sex it is, but not always the age. I had this same problem with my female H.Paucidens

cheers guys yeh im buliding a rock face in a 2ft tank well i say rock face its more of a dry stone wall about 4 inches thick so there will be plenty of room hides ect and they shouldent eat each other if food is all ways there to eat

from my under standing if they can sqush them selfs in to a nice tight hide and block the entrance with there claws they feel safe and in turn they are safe becuase nothink can get them from behind

at the moment they are all on there own on a cooling period loool

yeh i think my male is not mature becuase even my smallest female is sooo much bigger than him

but yeh thanks for the help guys

Be careful that the female does not cannibalize him....This is very popular within this genus.
