Hi and thanks for the the comment!

I now have 3 separate containers. I separated my biggest larvae last night from the others.

I have also noticed that the Ones which were in the container with the biggest larvae have small nibble marks on the end of their tails so I've separated him from the others as he/she seems to be intimidating them. Also I have done it because I've researched that they tend to bite each other's tails due to overcrowding. So for now I'm going to keep max 3 per container but as they get bigger I might have to keep 1 in each container or 2 in a container.
