Looks great now! All i'd add it to make sure you've got a thermometer and hygrometer! also if you've got hatchlings watch their feeding to make sure theyre not swallowing too much of the substrate. Theyre clumsy little buggers!
Oh and wheres the waterdish?

don't worry i have a thermometer a hygrometer and a water dish just haven't put them in yet was just doing the decor first.

i've also got a heat mat on the back and a habistat attached to make sure it doesn't get too cold.

its not a hatchling its about 6 months old.

yeah well i'm only gonna have it there as a precaution and its freezing in the room she's going in.

i won't use the heat mat if its warm enough but i don't want her to freeze.

might just use it for nights when it really drops cold

you want your temps between 70 and 80 in the day, and 60 and 70 at night, as a rulew of thumb. A little either way and you're fine. If your room temps are only 55 and 60 then yes i'd use a mat. I have 1 that i use only in the winter, in the summer they really dont need or like it
