Pretty much. Happy tarantulas are ones that are pretty much doing nothing.

If the rosehair isnt eating, it is most likely in pre-molt. However, if you first got it, it may just be getting used to its environment. If neither of these apply, it could just be comming out at night. Even if none of this applies, it is quite common for tarantulas to do this. they are solitary animals and prefer to keep to themselves.
