How often do they generally molt, and does it take them long?

Will the blue color slowly return or do they lose this coloring as they reach maturity?? Also, thanks for not attaching any pics of any cucarachas!

Depending on species and a whole host of other factors tarantulas generally molt every few months(spiderlings) to every year or more for older bigger tarantulas. Spiderlings molt fairly quickly, usually about an hour, but larger species can take 8 hours or more.

He will stay brown and wont molt again. And he probably wont live another year. Once mature the only goal of a male tarantula is to mate. So I'm gonna send him out on a loan.
