Sounds like youre keeping it too hot. Try a daytime ambient temp. in the high 70s with a basking light for a "hot spot" and give it a hidebox filled with a damp medium. They shouldn't be using the water dish as more than a drinking vessel and occasional soaking area unless they're overheated and/or dehydrated. Also, you might want to try a more natural substrate than newspaper as both gilas and beadeds like to dig and tunnel. It also creates a more interesting environment for both the keeper and the kept. Good luck.
Dave
