i recently bought a repti breeze XL and i’m waiting for the order of everything to come into my work so i can pay for y’all the stand and everything else to decorate it.
Any suggestions on how i should set it up? I’m gonna put the plant i have currently in the new cage along with the sticks and the blue pluming wire and obviously fake plants.

Feel free to post pictures of your repti breeze XL so i can copy ideas ;)

Blue plumbing wire?
I would go with real branches and all real plants. Mine is not a reptibreeze but this is how I have mine set up. All my plants are anchored using dragon ledges by dragon strand.

All depends on the chameleon species but one thing is generally for all of them and that is to have the middle of the cage full of plants so that they can hide from you and the light. I’ll post some pics of mine it’s a medium as I’ll be upgrading to a dragon strand cage next month but I even created a drainage tray out of a garbage lid and drilling a hole in an end table I’ll show you my set up. I also put aquarium backers on each side of my setup as to keep the humidity up cuz with the all screen cages it’s hard.

bemans is more of what you wanna shot for mines temporary. Dragon strand cages are where it’s at or if not use fishing line and put branches along the frame of your cage to use as support

Get the dragon ledges. I think they are $65. If your a bit handy, you could make your own. It makes mounting much easier and makes the cage more sturdy. Take care of it and it can last for a while, Im told.

I have a reptibreeze large all set up as i’ve been using for almost a year now i believe. it’s full of hides and places for her to bask/climb/overall explore. She’s a female veiled chameleon roughly a year old, about 10-12 inches long.

This temporary set up for a female panther is a medium ReptiBreeze (16x16x30), but it's easily scalable and might give you ideas! I highly suggest you purchase/make Dragon Ledges, as my build here was an engineering nightmare without them and I'm always afraid to move anything!

Is that a compact fluorescent you're using for UVB?
Yah might wanna change that out just for reference I had my compact fluorescent for 3 days while waiting for my Arcadia T5 and it was the zoomed one and I got a .02 uvb rating at basking 5 inches under the screen. And a panther should be sitting at around 3.0. So they are way underpowered
