Well, its kind of up to you. At that size, you can prob keep them in the vials they come in, with some moist substrate. Feeding either chopped crix, pinheads (if slings are appropriate size), or flightless fruitflies.
What species are we talking about here?

also for water what sould i do about that.
Just keep the soil a little damp. at that size you won't want them drowning in a water dish anyway and they are getting most of their water from their food. The damp soil just keeps things humid so that the fragile spiderling does not dessicate. I like to keep a syringe on hand for dripping the water down the sides of the vials.

I gave my half inch pinktoe sling a leaf in its deli cup, and not only did it have a ball webbing all over it, but I think that helped keep the humidity up too.
