I think he will recover soon. Maybe just quietly sit by the tank for a while. Go slowly with reestablishing touching. Food also strengthens bonds.

I honestly hadn’t expected him to want to interact after that incident so soon, if ever again. But, yesterday night he was extremely interactive, more than usual, actually. He was weaving himself in and out of my fingers and when offered a crab, he began to eat it while sitting on my hand. I had to do a gentle tug of war to get him to get off of my hand.
