I hate spiders just as much as the next guy but what really freaked me out was when I tried to take the first spider out of the tank with my hand it released some sort of liquid....I did not like that at all....lol

See, this is why I love spiders! They can surprise us! I know I know. That's a hit against them to most people. Lol
That was a house spider as stated already. While a few spiders have adapted to live underwater, many are capable of spending short periods submerged using the same mechanism. Spiders when viewed up close are covered with little hair like projections. These are most obvious on tarantulas. Anywho, when a spider goes under water, these hairs cooperate with surface tension to encase the abdomen in a bubble of air. Since spiders breathe by diffusion rather than inhalation, the bubble remains largely undisturbed as it wanders around under water. I don't recall the names of those that make this a lifestyle though.
My guess is that it either stayed under too long and suffered from co2 toxicity leading to its untimely demise, or the salt and mineral content overpowered its internal chemistry upon exiting. Either way, I mourn the loss of a true arachnid pioneer, who went boldly where no spider has gone before. May he rest in peace.
