tarantulas sometimes fast for a variety of reasons. since you had a group fast, my thought would be something with the t room, ambient temp. humidity etc. but i have been wrong

None of the times listed are inordinately long fasts for those species, but it's possible temperature COULD be a factor. What temperature do you keep them at?

Shouldn't be a problem. Just try and have patience. I know, that's easier to preach than to practice!
