Typically it isn't recommended to leave the bath in all the time. My guys get a bath a week in the winter, two typically in the summer. It can dry out their skin, so too much can be a bad thing. Depending on the type of bath container, they can overheat if used as a bed due to lack of air circulation, so I'd pass on using it all the time.
