    Water only goes in the small wells in the center. I made this exact same mistake with my Styrofoam incubator, too. I prefer not to use the wells at all, and put water in small cups--it's easier to regulate the humidity that way.
    Have you considered the "dry method" of incubation?
    BTW we'd love to have you join the Syro-bators club. There's a lot of great advice on there already and we'd all love to hear about your hatching adventures/experiences/wisdom. Link is in my signature. :)
