In most tank set-ups all of the lighting and heat sources should be on the hot/warm side and the pool should be on the cool side. Covering the top of the cool side with a sheet of acrylic or glass will help tremendously in raising the humidity. Adding a few small, live plants to the environment also helps to create more humidity. A submersible aquarium heater helps to take the chill off the water, but an undertank heater placed under the pool area works well also. As long as your dragon has at least intermittent periods of high humidity you shouldn't notice any adverse affects on his health. It is important to have dry periods as well as humid periods to help preclude the growth of mold and fungus. Diane
