I agree with the last poster about using a linear ho t5 uvb bulb. That being said, if you have a small mv in that dome, then please disregard my comments.

I would add in some more vines and horizontal branches. Also I see a double dome light. If you have a coil uvb bulb I would switch it out for a t5 5.0 linear uvb. You will also want a plant light if you don’t have one. A 6500k t5 works good.
I will get a t5 soon. Thanks

Also, did you say your enclosure was 16x16x30? The pictures seem to show a bigger enclosure.

Looks good. Upgrade the lights. You may want to consider additional lighting options to improve plant growth. Don't forget to seed it.

Let’s see a pic of the substrate layer. Always curious to see how others set up drainage, and how their soil looks.

What kind of CUC you running?
Hey so I’m going to introduce several dozen different kinds of isopods in hopes that they’ll reproduce.. and maybe some BSFL.. I know my panther will munch on the cuc, so how often should I feed him? I’m planing to gut-load, and dust crickets as often as needed.. Or can a panther survive on the clean up crew? I’m VERY new to this.

How much does a linear 65k plant bulb increase the temperature?

I wouldnt recommended introducing too many types of isopods, competion will kill them all off. Its not recommended to have more than 2 types of isos in a vivarium. As for the surviving on isos question... no not even, and your cham will generally ignore them, you also cant dust isos in your substrate.
