Some herps just like to do that...
Turtles are especially notorious for it.
Just change the water every day. :-)

Be glad she poops in the bowl! That way you don't have to search for it in the substrate or change the substrate as often. Cheaper and easier just change the water.

That's what they LIKE to do. You can lead a lizard to water, but you make them NOT ***!

Provide a second water dish.

I do have 2 water dishes

So does he poop in both of them? If not, why not just designate one as the poopy bowl and one as the drinking bowl? Perhaps he's more comfortable pooping in water?

Yes and it gets anoying!!

On the bright side, at least the substrate should be comparatively clean all the poop's in one location.
