    Default Water in water bowel completely evaporates in literally 20 seconds or less?

    I'll fill my little pac man frogs water source and turn around and BAM it's gone.... I don't know why it instantly evaporates...... I don't use a heat lamp so how is this possible?

    Unless your waterbowl is your stove, it's not evaporating. It's most likely a hole in your bowl.

    If it's a small bowl, and a large frog is sitting in it, he could absorb it. Other than that, I have no idea. But I can assure you that it won't evaporize in
    20 seconds.

    if the frog was in there it could be that he/she absorb the water...if not...your pacman dumped all the water while you turned lol jk.

    If the bowl is on top of a heat mat it may go quicker? Or your frog may just splash a lot? If it's quite shallow with a large frog a few leg kicks can splash it out.

    I really doubt a heat pad is enough to do the trick in 20 sec.

    What is the frog's normal temperature and humidity? If the water evaporating quickly (usually from higher temperatures), than it should be producing abit of humidity. Do you notice a difference before and after you put in the water. I don't understand how water would evaporate so quickly, though.

    You can test for leaks for sure by putting a napkin of paper towel on a flat surface, fill the dish (don't spill any of the water), and then check the paper towel to see if it is wet.

    It maybe the bowl is pourus, so the water goes into the bowl, ( if it was a terracote bowl) could be that unless you have a plastic water bowl.

    Believe me they absurd and also splash it out of the dish They are very sloppy going in and out .They are not careful at all. when they sit in it they move around and there goes the water in to the coco fiber. I bet you the coco fiber is extremely wet around the dish.

    Could have something to do with the type of water conditioner your using. Just a guess. Might change how the water changes form.

    This happens to me.
    It's because my water dish is absurdly shallow and if it goes into the tank on un-even ground (and coco husk substrate is not going to lay perfectly flat) it all just slowly spills out. I'm gonna think about a new type of dish that will hold the water better.

    Take bowl out of tank and fill it with waters?

    Even boiling waters don't evaporate that fast.

    The only time I had a problem like this was when I used to keep moss on the cool side of the tank. If any of the moss hung over into the water dish it would cause a siphoning effect or like capillary action. It would obsorb the water from the dish and pull it into the rest of the moss and substrate. That's the only time I had this happen, but it took longer than 20 seconds. I would have to point more to spillage.
