ok the big moment has come and gone my baby goliath has molted now its sitting on top of its molt It looks like its got everything free its still whitish the only thing I need to know is should I raise the temperature to help it harden or lower the humidity and should I keep it quiet in the room. what can I do to help it harden. and it hasn't moved since i got up his morning Is there any chance it could allready be dead or is it normal for them to not move.

It resting after its re-birth.
Just let it rest, it'll start moving soon enough.:)
I'd give it a week to harden up. Things sound good to me.

Don't worry about changing humidity, or temp for it. I've raised my blondi from a hatchling and she's always been happy to sit in her normal conditions until she hardens.

Hardening takes about three days when they're really small, and about a week as adults.

Good luck with the baby! They're wonderful spiders :)
