B albiceps sling help


Hi everyone. I picked up my second tarantula today (B albiceps) and realized that it was a lot smaller than I was expecting. When I got my first T, it was advertised as being 1/2". So I went for that size again, expecting it to be roughly the same. This sling is tiny. I think it's probably second instar based on the presence of setae, but the color is throwing me for a loop. I'm concerned my husbandry won't be up to snuff to keep it alive. I am planning on feeding it a halved mini mealworm as soon as it settles in. Any suggestions about moisture level, etc? Photo of the sling + current setup. Right now the sub is very slightly moist and some of the moss contains moisture as well.
