1) ive always used tap water, never had any problems,
2)i spray every other day, just a light mist
3) i puf their water bowl under the small ceramic heater i use, this along with spraying keeps humidity up.
4) i feed mine mealworms, just standard size, crickets and locusts, a few go in every day, they always eat the lot.
5) i have my ceramic bulb on 24/7 set to the lowest overnight temps they need. By thermostat.
6) costs me id say £3 a week to feed as i bulk buy my bugs, so their share isnt much.

hope this helps.

Ok what bulbs and uvb lights should I use and can you please name everything in your set up
I use a 60w spot for basking area, a 5% small strip uv bulb, then a 60w ceramic, i have some rocks under basking light, to help hold heat and they seem to love scrambling up them to bask, a shallow water bowl, so they can soak and a smaller one to drink from. Then a meal worm dish, plants, a couple of hides, although they tend to burrow undernesth them. I use topsoil with a little playsand mixed in for substrate, then obviously thermostst and thermometer probes. And a guard around the bulbs.
