Yes it does go back to pink, though it will have a fresh coat of bristles so you wont be able to see it.

I suggest you try feeding again in a week or so. As long as it's hydrated, she will be ok until then.

The bigger they get with each molt, the longer it takes them to harden and feel ready to eat again. How big is your B. smithi?
Oh, and for future reference, the genus is capitalized, and the species name is not. So instead of reading B. Smithi, it should read B. smithi. :)

My B. smithi starts eating 3-4 weeks after the molt. Just provide fresh water.
