It's very important that you keep your Bearded Dragons hydrated since they do live in a desert environment, dehydration is something that is fairly easy for them to fall into. You always want to keep a dish of fresh clean water in their cage. Bearded Dragons do tend to defecate in their water, so you want to make sure that you check it everyday. If they do defecate in it, rinse it out with a bleach solution and replace it with fresh clean water. I put the dish in there empty. It's easier for me to be able to pour the water into there. I use a pitcher and in the water, I get it out of the tap. It's safe to use tap water if you get some sort of treatment for it. This is called Repti-safe. This is what I like to use. I add some to all of my reptile water. What it does is, it removes all of the ammonia and chlorine and any other harmful things that could be inside of the tap water. Now, mine is clogged, so I just take of the cap and pour a little bit in there. The recommended amount is two to three drops per six ounces of water, so I just kind of guesstimate and pour some in there until the water turns a pretty blue color and then we'll just pour it right into his water dish over here and Bearded Dragons do drink quite a bit of water, so you want to make sure that you check this on a daily basis. Even if they haven't defecated in it, it's likely to be quite low, they go through quite a bit of water.
