Yup. Web mat and a refusal to eat. Bump the humidity a tiny bit. When it's on it's back, don't freak. They don't die on their backs, it's just molting...

What do you mean "lethargic"?

My OBT is somewhat blue in color (carapace and legs) and its abdomen is somewhat rusty orange. It refuses food now and doesnt web that a lot. His size maybe I estimate at 1"

Stick a pic up mate, but yeah, it'll just stop eating and MAY web itself into a hole if it's made one.
If you suspect its in premoult, just dont lob any crix in with it. leave it for a week or 2 then offerfood again.
If it doesnt eat it then either remove food or kill it in there or a better option is use a maggot or 2 as food. You can leave them in with a moulting spider no probs.

That an OBT? Looks more like an GBB or something, very young..

Anyway, I think I have never seen a spider that fat, so I wouldnt really feed it much the next few days :-)

If it moults, it will grow huge with an abdomen filled like that! Damn
