Default no eating, no wheeling

Hi to everyone...
I am puzzled!
we have Marty for 3 years by now and he has always been a picky but good eater and always messing around with the wheel.
Since last week he stopped eating and wheeling at night.

I checked him thoroughly since I am a bit "expert" with pet hedgehogs and he is fine. I tried to make him move thinking he might be constipated and sometimes when he is out with me, he would drink and eat 1 or 2 kibble (always softened with water). Usually he loves boiled sprouts but nothing.

Nothing has changed in his life....only it is now warmer in the Netherlands (in the room there 24-25 degrees and dark hours are much shorter than light hours (no shutters yet in the room where he stays).

His weight is now around 500 grams (he lost some) and when he poops the stools look very black and not dry.

For the rest, really there's no other change in his behavior....what can it be??? anybody has suggestions, apart from that one to take it to the vet, that I'll surely do asap?
Thanks a bunch! ^_^
