Another advantage of a naturalistic setup with live plants is that the anole's droppings will fertilize the plants and any escaped crickets that die will just decompose and feed the soil, too. Slugs are awful, but sow bugs and springtails are great for consuming dead plant matter. I deliberately added both.
