This is my Brachys enclosure. She's gone through 2 molts since I got her. She's gonna molt again soon. When I first introduced her to the new enclosure (two molts ago) she seemed "happy", exploring around and being very active. She molted inside the half nutshell.
She's got the water dish and the hiding place, as well as those fake plastic plants to fool around. She's lightly webbed everywhere, even on top of them.
I use coconut fiber as a substrate and keep it neither dry nor too damp.
After the last molt she just seems to stay in one spot only. She catches her prays there and doesn't move much, unless I poke her. She also seems to be a fan of climbing as I sometimes notice her on the enclosure's wall as in the picture below, but only above her favorite spot.
My room temperature is around 27'C-29'C / 80'F-84'F.

Is it normal for her to stay mostly there or it's a sign she's unhappy with the enclosure?

Spiders don't have emotions...its neither happy, nor unhappy.

The set up looks just fine, there's no reason for concern.

I think it actually looks very nice, kudos to you.

If you're having trouble keeping humidity in there, try out some sphagnum moss. It'll match your decor and the sling can actually drink from it.
