1.instar refer to the newly born babies which have not gone through the first molt:

The youngest specimen which can be circulated in the hobby is actually 2.instar (after going through their very first molt and dismounted from mom's back)

Hence, what you have now should be 2.instar or above.

Provided that they are not in pre-molt condition:

While some scorps may eat at the very first day once they have been shipped/transit to the keepers...

Some scorps may required a few days or up to a week to get accustomed to the new enclosure that which you have place them in.

Once they are comfortable and "settled down, they should eat when they are hungry.

Yes they exactly look like 2 instars. So then i will just leave them alone and check on them and let them get used to their home and see if they start eating in a couple of days:). Thank you for the information GS.

No prob mate Smile

If they are not already in pre-molt condition, they should be eating by now.
Do update us on how things go.

Cheers,
