Looking better! I would add a more foliage in there still. Although he can move around pretty well now, he will experience less stress if you add some more live plants for him to crawl on and hide in. I would also replace that red bulb if I were you. Chameleons are highly sensitive to color and red seems to be the most common one which I see bothering chameleons. A white light is always preferred. Regular ol' household incandescent will do the trick great (and cost less).

This is how I think about it: The lights we use are meant to mimic the sun in the wild. While the sun produces both heat and UVB, we provide two separate light sources to do the same. But either way, since we are trying to recreated their natural environment, it is important to remember that the sun isn't red. Red lights are useful for some reptiles, but chameleons are not one of them (y)

Yea had another thread about switching it did not want to stress him out more today by moving the light setup after setting up the mist king(which is great)Had more plants in there but it was really hard to clean and had to remove everything every time I cleaned I’m gonna add more philendron coming from the top of the screen though thanks for the quick reply

My two biggest problems are the assembly letters on the cage and the Giant's cup. JK :LOL::ROFLMAO: kinda the letters are a pet peeve of mine.
Save the red-light for Halloween or incase your incandescent burns out as a stop gap. Nice work!

Thanks lol don’t know why I never ripped them off.The giant,s cup is for cricket cup feeding they can’t jump out of the large Taco Bell cup(no green bay cups) and tall enough so he’ll still use his tounge.switching to incandescent tomorrow you guys have not steered me wrong yet thanks for everyone’s help

Much better, I agree with the others, I see you have that thick grey vine thing,. Id totally add 1 or 2 more different types and sizes. Those are great for making odd shapes so he can access even more unutilized space. Cause I see a lot of open spaces in the sides and backs. Chameleons love to have jungle gyms of intersecting vines. They usually come in 6 foot long pieces. Looking good though. The one I put in the link is pretty neat. its thin but its not just 1 straight piece it has parts where it branches off and its pretty natural looking. There is also this mossy covered vine that looks great, but I don't remember where I got it
