So my P Cancerides is allegedly 3-4 years old (says the seller). I've had him for about 5 months and he's always been a great eater, full of energy and very defensive (normal from what I understand). For the past 4 weeks, he just stays in his hide and doesn't eat (or drink that I can tell). Very sluggish, so much that at one point, I thought he was dead. I went to pinch grab him and he threw up a threat pose. No signs of molting on his rump either. His favorite are crickets but I have also tried Reds, Dubia, and SuperWorms just to see, and he wants nothing. Any ideas what the issue might be? I'm worried. :(
