My biggest terrarium...Help?

Hello. I have tried setting up terrariums before, like in small pop bottles, but I have just set one up in a 10 gallon, Half-Moon. I love the way it looks, but since it is a half moon, I don't have a good lid for it, so I turned it into a terrarium, with a glass lid. I made it for 3 anoles, but now I don't know what to do. I have quite a few plants, so will that make it a little contained ecosystem? Or should it just be a terrarium, without anything in it? My room is a constant temperature of 78* F, due to all my aquariums set at 78*, and so I didn't put a heater on it. Also, any advice/comments?
Thanks,
Rick

If you are going to put anoles in in you will need a lid - they like to climb up plants ect. - a wire one would work.

I have a glass lid, but since it is a half moon, I can't find any screen ones Since it is glass, he can climb, I am just worried about them suffocating. Would only 1 be ok, and complete the cycle?
Thanks,
Rick

Or just cut out in the shape you need out of a stiff fine wire.

I think that one would be fine. Cutitng/making your own lid from supplies at at building type store (Home Depot) is probably your easiest way to get a lid. They do like a fairly high humidity. I'll try to post a picture for you of what another teacher here has in her classroom.
