I've had my Rose haired tarantula for about three months. When I got her, she was in a very small environment with some kind of wood chips. About a month and a half ago I changed her entire environment and put her in a ten gallon tank with peat moss. She has a water dish and the water is kept fresh, and she has a hiding place. When I first put her in there she was fine, very active and ate as often as I would feed her. But for the past month she has refused to eat anything. She just sits on top of her crawl space. I mist the tank daily, and I keep her tank about 80 degrees. Could I be doing something wrong that is causing her not to eat? This is the first tarantula that I've had so it's kind of worrying me.
