For 3. instar, they should eat 1-2 appropriately sized feeder per week.

We all know that a growing scorpling (2-5.instar) has closer feeding intervals as compared to adults which are able to go on months without feeding.

Just to keep your mind at ease, the longest time interval i have not fed my 3.instar forest scorplings is about 10-14 days. Provided that all other conditions e.g. substrate moisture/ enclosure's temperate were kept right, it shouldn't be a problem.
