Default Leopard Gecko has been hiding constantly for days

Just looking for some advice really. I have a female leopard gecko who is about 9 months old, and I stupidly tried to introduce another female gecko into her terrarium about 6 days ago. It went terribly as she just attacked the new gecko straight away and I had to pull the new one out of there and take her back to the shop, I won't try doing that again! So ever since she has just been in her wet hide and I haven't seen her come out at all. Is this something I should be worried about? I moved her hides around a bit to try and make everything seem a bit new when I put the new gecko in there, to try and make her feel a bit less territorial (which obviously didn't work). Could it be that I've really stressed her out now?

I wouldn't really worry unless she's got some injuries. It's likely she's just stressed out and found the place that's made her feel safest. As long as she doesn't lose much weight she'll be fine
