yea these guys need to bath on their own, they stress realy easisly so donít hold/ bath them your self. thats rule 101 of bassies, donít hold em! so ya they need a water bowl 24/7 the chrix are probably tryting to get some water to drink, are you feeding the chrix? and providing them with water? a damp spounge in the tank will help.

get one in the tank they need to swim. to keep the crickets from dying in the water just stick a stick in the water so they can get out

A basilisk’s native environment is the tropical jungles/swamps of Central and South America. They basically live near water in the wild. (Hence the evolved ability to run on water as a defense/ escape mechanism). I keep a large rubbermaid type tub in the bottom of my enclosure with clean water (changed daily) in it for my guy to drink and "swim".
Plus I have a mistking automatic misting system that goes off every couple of hours to keep the enclosure humidity level up.
