I got home from work today and my G. rosea has molted. This is my first T, and I have only had her for three, weeks. I though that it might be ready to molt because she hasn't eaten yet. I'm very excited, but I have a question. Should I remove the old body that is left in the cage? Other than that, I think that I just leave her alone, right?

She has been in her hide since I got home, but right after I posted my question, I looked over and she is now on top of the body and kind of kneading it with her legs and fangs.
Some of my T's will kind of hang around the molt for a couple of days. Some don't. Not sure why. There is no harm in leaving the molt where it is. Most of us get anxious to retrieve the molt to sex the T.
You're T will require a period of time to physically recover after a molt. It's probably a good idea to leave it be for at least 24-48 hours. Wait until your T's fangs have hardened to offer food. That could take a few days or a few weeks depending on the age/size of your T. Good luck.
If you come to a fork in the road, take it.
