They can fast for long times. Just provide a waterdish and dont worrie about the tarantula not eating. Try to feed it once a month and remove preyitems if it is not eating it

Photos would be really helpful to determine if there's an underlying cause other than "spiders gonna spider" My B. hamorii hasn't eaten since November but she's doing fine. These species can go for looong periods without food, so I'd hazard a guess to say yours is alright.

Just make sure it has water available, this species can go well over a year without food

My T stopped eating for a while (3 months) but is eating now again. Also about 5 years old.
