    Definitely big enough to molt sex then, which is a plus. Im just not great at vent sexing. I'm second guessing myself already..

    Aren't males and females different colours once they reach juvi stage? I thought females were more black/white and males were more of a beige to light brown colour? I could be wrong, but I saw a mating video once where that looked to be the case. So if that is the case I would say female due to the colouring.
