    I need some information about Chaco hold knee tarantula and I need some answers to my questions. Why does the water dish lose alot of water but I don't see it drink from it and why is my tarantula moving some of the substrate.

    Your T will drink when you're not around, often at night and water evaporates too aiding humidity in the container. As for moving substrate that is just a T thing, some do it more than others.

    I would test the dish. Remove it from the enclosure and fill it on a plate and leave it overnight. Need to rule that out. I am surprised how many are flawed even by some of the reputable pet companies. Once you rule that out, you either have a thirsty spider, too much heat in the tank or you, if you have moss, make sure the moss is not touching it as it will empty the dish daily.
