1. Im not exacly sure you also have a mature male , juding by your other posts it ws never very clear ..i think pics would confirm.
Just because it is mature doesnt mean it "does not molt" it can molt...which would most likely die doing but will probably die before that time comes anyway

2. Wait about one week before feeding for the tarantulas fangs to harden up.

3. You can use the molt to sex the tarantula. Look for spermathacae in the molt (this will take doing some research)

Best of luck Very Happy
