You should,IMO,leave a water dish in with your animal at all times, obviously if it runs out that won't be a major problem.
I whittness mine drinking all the time. Remember that in most captive environmentsthat humidity will be lower than in the wild. I usually find rubbers in very damp conditions under tins and boards, these animals can handle fairly high humidity and some level should be maintaned.All of the charina that I have at this time will quit eating ifthe water runs out and then eat again within a day or two of refilling, with the exeption of breading season then the males just don't eat with any kind of pattern.
