"How many eyes does a spider have?" is not accepted?

I think in that case you would just use the topic/subject maker after spider, and not need the counter. I'm thinking since a counter was used, a number is expected in the sentence.

It's a counter for 눈

Can someone please shed some light on when to use 몇 개 versus 얼마나 많이? I seem to always pick the wrong one :-/
