Would a critter keeper fit an adult Grammoastola pulcra?

+ would one of those coconut hides fit it or is is it too big?
Depends on the size of the critter keeper. The opening of the hide needs to be just slightly larger than the carapace of the T for it to be able to fit, but they will also dig under something to hide if needed.

the only critter keepers i saw looked wide but they get big any alternatives you know off? ( cheap ones too) also do i need to overflow the water dish every time i refill it?
 
Something like this one will work for all but the largest specimens:


Honestly, though, if you want cheap, just go to Walmart or Target and get a big Rubbermaid-style storage tote in the size you want - shouldn't cost more than $20. Make some holes in it for airflow using a drill, soldering iron, or heat up a nail with a lighter, and you'll be good to go. As for the water dish, you don't need to overflow each time you refill it - you don't want to make the substrate swampy. G. pulchra prefer a little more moisture in the sub, so once you see that the top inch is dry, go ahead and overflow a little. This should be about every 2 weeks, but you'll just have to look to see how quickly it dries out.

Did you finally get a T or what?

still no about the t situation ( people i live are afraid of tarantulas) i still do research for the future :)
 
A medium-sized KK is ample for a pulchra. Just remember to fill 2/3 of the enclosure with sub to avoid fall incidents and you'll have a happy spider.
