1. Ive go 4 h. Spinifers and thier about a year old now and im just wondering how long roughly will it take for them to reach full size if there is anyway of telling

2. Also only one of them have moulted to 4 instar about a month ago, and the rest dont even look like thier going to moult anytime soon, is this normal

All depends on the amount they are eating. If i had to take a guess, id say that one thats molting more is eatin more.

Hopefully someone answers this for you as mine are maybe 4 or 5i and almost a year since I got them at maybe 2i. Mine are all molting about the same time but definitely not the fastest growers Very Happy

What Anemiaffx says may also be true. I know some people power feed to help grow faster but it may not be the healthiest thing for them. I think it is mostly theoretical but I can not say either way for sure. I'd assume as populations of all creatures fluctuate sometimes there will naturally be an overabundance of food and eating like this will occur. That's not to say it is healthy though.

I just posted this link up on another thread but will do the same here as it may lend some insight to you as well and definitely a great read!
