Feeding update
Fed #3 first since it's molt this past week, 1/2"+ roach, slam-o-matic! Hit it hard.
Here's a pic of it holding the roach through webbing

#1 and #2, good strikes and easier pics to see
#1 eating before molt.jpg
#2 eating before molt.jpg

#4 is where is got interesting. This guy must be close to premolt as not only did it not eat it threw a threat post at the roach and attached it, driving it away. So that's basically the do not disturb sign right there. I give it a week or so before molt. Let's see if that hold true.

#3 was hanging out of its web hammock this morning, I assumed that meant it was hungry so I fed all 4 of these guys

#4 still refusing to eat, even tried a smaller roach than last time.

#3, already molted to 6i a few weeks ago, got a larger roach this time and nailed it instantly.
#1 and 2 both took 1/2" roaches, same size as last time, and pounced on arrival.
