they dessicate quickly. i put an untreated sponge on top of the screen lid then put a platic cup/container on the sponge with a small hole drilled in the bottom so the h2o slowly drips into the tank, preferably on some leaves. mantids will drink and drink....

and watching them eat crickets is cool...but watching them catch and eat a butterfly is really cool
