Default First vivarium build

Hey everyone this is my first vivarium build and I’m absolutely addicted. Many thanks to the forum members as I did some extensive reading on previous builds, plant suggestions, heating and pretty much everything that went into this build came from knowledge acquired through the dendroboard. I built my own background using silicon, great stuff, cork bark and some net pots. For my plants I currently have a money tree, golden pothos, peace Lilly, nerve plant, some various air plants and a fireball, wild tiger and Mo peppa Bromeliads and still need to plant my vanilla panfloria, watermelon pepermonia, absolute zero cryptanthus and a few more air plants. I have a 20cfm max output computer fan blowing airflow in on one side of the tank with another pulling air out both turned down to the lowest settings. For lighting I’m currently using a Finnex planted/ 24 but thinking I’m gonna need some more light, possibly thinking of getting a beamsworks to supplement my lighting. I was gonna go with the Evo quad but the top of my tank is getting pretty tight and it wouldn’t fit with my other lights on there as I have a compact UVB and mini halogen to supplement my heating as the under tank heater isn’t putting out enough heat for what I want. Im also planning on insulating my undertank heater by adding some styrofoam so less heat escapes from the bottom. Currently it’s fluxuating around 72-75f but I wanna get it up to around 78f as I’m going to be adding red eye tree frogs once my plants have grown in more and my isopod and springtail populations grow. Still searching for the right manzanita branches and some vines for all the climbing these frogs will be doing. Thanks again and lookin forward to future builds!
