I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it’s an avicularia so it’ll moult in a web hammock. It could be an exception but I’d say unfortunately that it hasn’t made it. Leave it how it is for another day just to make sure 100% but I’m pretty sure

ive always kept water in the dish at all times. was it that I had the water dish on the ground on the cage?
If your entire enclosure isnt set up properly they wont eat or drink. They pretty much ball up and quit...some call it stress. Photos of your enclosure can help diagnose a problem in the future if you get another one.

It had nothing to web on and climb....that's why it died. Your enclosure itself is perfect though. It needs to be set up like this...

Thank you so much for the information it is greatly appreciated. Dually noted that before I get another one I’ll get so more things for it to climb and web on? I’m just upset that I was ultimately the demise of such a gorgeous and awesome creature. She never bit me or my kids and for that it saddens me she went so young
