In same spot for three days

You might have heard that Shelly and Bob aren't doing well. Shelly got better, but Bob is the same. He has been in the same exact spot for three days and what should I do? Is this normal?

Oh dear - how is the temp/humidity? I read that their metabolisms slow down dramatically with each degree lowered, so it would stand to reason that lower temps might produce decreased activity. No limbs dropped?

Fingers crossed it isn't a surface moult. Any movement yet?

Could it be possible if you go answer the emergency help template, so that way we know what your conditions are in the tank and work from there.
