Beardies get their hydration through their food, have a water bowl in there as they like to soak now and again. You want a water bowl big enough for them to get inside but bear in mind that they WILL crap in it....usually straight after you've replaced it with nice clean water just to annoy you

Beardie baths are ok too, but I not bathe mine to help him with shedding and or to clean him. Once a month or every few months is a good time scale for baths

They get s lot of hydration from their greens too, just avoid foods which a high water content like iceberg lettuce and cucumber as it'll give them super runny poop which absolutely reaks in a 30 degree vivarium
