Default Exo Terra 18x18x24 Construction in Process-Lots Of Pics

I forgot to take pics of the tank before I started, but here is what it looks like now... I don't think the camera does it justice, makes it look horrible IMO. Anyway here you go.






So, thats about it... please give me tips on how to improve (I'm getting moss on the 18th and some more plants).
Two questions:
1. My humidity is at 70 how can I raise it to the 80 frogs need?
2. My Temperature is at 73, how can I raise that to 80 too?

Thanks!

Good start. Once you get your new plants in it will take on a whole different shape. Your temp is totally fine for winter. I barely hit 70* right now for a daytime high. Is your top covered with anything to help bump up the humidity? But in all seriousness, 70 is ok for them as far as humidity.

Looks good so far- what type of air plant is that on the back?

It's a Tillandsia Bulbosa. Are their a plant recommendations for me? I'm pretty lost when it comes to some good looking plants for vivariums.

It's nice so far, a bit empty but I'm sure that once you get your plants it will look great.

Sure hope the plants I will buy in 3 days will survive this weather. They cancelled all the schools in my area because its -20˚F w/o wind chill and -40˚F with wind chill. My dad won't let anyone leave the house, not even my dog!

Man, I am glad I live in Florida, hehe...Tank is looking good, I am sure it will look much better when you get more plants in there.
