I know a mature female is orange on black whereas the male is grey but at what stage does this happen? I ask because mine has moulted recently and is very dark with bright orange now at around 2''

The color doesn't change until it matures into a male.

Thanks, I thought that might be the case but I was being hopeful. I'll just enjoy that gorgeous colour while I can :T:
