My B.emilia sling is floating?!

Hey everyone :)
No i don‘t have a flying tarantula but sort of a problem tho. I often find my little sling floating on top of the water in her water dish. And I mean often, she‘s been doing this for weeks now. I tried raising humidity but that didnt seem to affect the behaviour, I think the enclosure is rather moist for a brachypelma. So do you have an idea why shes doing that? Should i push her back on the substrate or just let her do her thing?
thanks in advance :)

How big is your container?
Plenty big for her, I am using a housecricket box (the ones they are sold in) as I couldnt find anything smaller, she seemed to be doing fine tho shes about 1cm but since she seemed fine.. so you think the container is the cause??
