Tarantulas actually have hydrophobic setae... meaning that they float.

I keep my herd of G. pulchra on cocoa fiber with a hide and a medium repti-rock water dish. I always overfill the bowl so that that corner of the enclosure stays damp, and I find that they tend to hang out in that corner about once a week or so. Below is a link that will show you the environment they come from, let me know if you have any specific questions.

UPDATE : Guys remember my female pulchra had bad molt with red legs? She recovered it this morning! Her legs are now jet black again! She is healthy once again
