Unhappy Advice for new chameleon owner

Hello - I bought my first chameleon who was about 8 weeks old. My viv set up is wooden with glass front 36" H, 24" W, 17" D. I have a waterfall, 60W basking light, and strip UV 5.0 light. I misted the viv a good 3 times per day, more when I could. I had him for 4 weeks and the poor chap died from dehydration. Where did I go wrong??? Or was he just poorly from the start. I have had conflicting advice on basking bulbs (ceramic or household), UV 5.0 or 10. Can anyone who is an expert give me some advice please.
