A.chalchodes worries

I am worried about my A.chalchodes, I will post her enclosure she is about 3 inches. She is the only one I have who seems to not come out, not eat, it sounds dumb but she is my only tarantula that seems unhappy. She did come from a chain pet store and was being handled there, i don't handle them. I have had her four about 4 months. Please constructive criticism i don't handle the other kind well. Ty for any suggestions and comments. She is back on the hide, did come out for a short time yesterday but hasn't eaten in over 45 days.

They have a reputation for not being great feeders... Our adult female often goes for long periods without feeding.. Sometimes months at a time.. As long as you have a water dish and offer food occasionally she will be fine if she doesn't eat take out the prey item.. .. Leave a few days and try again.. It will eat when it's ready..
All Ts are different and know what's best for them :)

I haven't seen my chalcodes in 9 months...no food or water. It's what they do. Personally I dont feel chalcodes are a good beginner species for this reason. The only thing I can see your setup needs is a little more substrate. Everything looks great though...

Ty I was wondering why I didn't put much substrate in, but I will fix that
