Are you talking for breeding? I know for breeding they should be just about the same size.

Otherwise size difference doesn't make a difference but they will eventually be pretty much the same size when full grown.

Male needs to be bigger than the female so he can wrap her. If the female is too big he wont be able to

I have seen some larger females can be bred to smaller males... But it is very hard and exhausting for him to do so. The female should be smaller or the same size... Preferably more than half his size, if she is smaller than him.

Ideal; Female should slightly be smaller. But a slightly bigger female can be paired to a smaller male

ya my female is about an inch and a half and male is about 2 maybe a little more... im in the process of condition them and im feeding her a few blood worms everyday to giver her a little boost so maybe she will grow faster to be more sizable. female is around 4 months and male is probably 5 or 6 months
