    It may be just the change. It had gotten used to the ground it had, and you just changed its whole world. Maybe it'll settle down once it gets used to it. If it takes more than a week, go back to what you were using, provided there was nothing wrong with that product.

    Great choice changing over the sub. Most tarantulas don't like the large chunks and they don't allow any amount of burrowing. Your T is a Grammostola sp., which usually like their enclosures on the dry side. The substrate probably came out of the bag a little damp so it could be climbing to avoid the moisture. It will settle down soon. :)
