I just recently traded my adult spinifer, which I had trouble with keeping comunally, she ate her partner.I got 5 Baby H.Spinifers instead. They are currently being kept together, and I don't know if I should keep them like that for their first molts. They seem ok, they hang in the same corner all cuddled up, and there doesn't seem to be any aggression between them. Also, I don't what to feed small guys like this, I have B. Jacksonis this size, and they eat small crickets, but these guys, I haven't tried yet. I also don't know what instar they are, I think 2nd, but not sure. Tell me what you think guys.

I just fed them a killed cricket, and they seem to eat him altogether

they'll be fine. species like this have even shown to be protective of cagemates during moulting. (they seem to get more agressive and will hang around the moulting scorp).

yes I have observed their protective nature over a sibling moulting. They will be fine together - living and feeding.

You have a better chance of keeping these communally because they will grow up together. Sometimes introduced sub adults / adults can fight to the death. rare but it does happen.
Just make sure as they grow you always give them plenty of places to hide in case siblings have a 'fall out'. They should do well though Very Happy

Excellent then, I won't separate them. Can't wait to see them grow, hopefully, they'll make me forget my latest heterometrus experience.

By the way, you're correct; those are second instar.
