They don't need too much water, they must have a rock or summat so that they can get out of the water or they can drown.

Also they stink to high heaven unless the bowl/tank is cleaned out every few days.

In an emergency feed it a few garden worms or even goldfish food until you can get to the pet shop.
I used to have a handle on life but it broke.
