Two days ago, he was moving around great and today I don't see any movement. The veins look thicker and redder, but not really forming a ring. I'm not sure if he's quitting or not. :( should I give him another day or two and see what happens?

    Doesn't hurt to leave it for a couple more days..

    I, though, think it's a goner. :/

    To me it looks like it quit, BUT I would watch it and wait a while. I have had some I thought had quit on me hatch out.
