Like enn49 said... try smaller food. Even some of my larger poecilotheria prefer small food. They will take multiple small crickets rather than a medium- large roach.tagging @regalis as she likes a good pokie and may have some insight but as other have said, a water dish is a must. Pokies are also very light sensitive so if in a bright area, they will naturally want to hide and run away from the light. Try and have him/her in a darker area to settle down.
