Overall looks pretty darn good. Just a few suggestions... Get a different thermometer, the strip ones don't work well at all. I'd suggest setting up a few hide spots other than in the water bowl - it's good to let the herp pick where s/he's comfortable and feels secure. I've seen people use those hollow half logs at the pet store and I personally LOVE PVC because it's cheap, comes in tons of shapes and sizes, and is freakishly easy to clean.

You do know that a fully grown PMF will require a larger tank?

I'd also suggest (not from my experince, just from other herp keeper's stories) setting down a paper towl or something of the like over the eco-earth durring feeding time to keep your PMF from gulping down substrate with his intended meal - that could later cause impaction.

Please post a pic of your little guy when he gets home! Baby Pacmans are so stinkin' cute!

Awesome! I personally use PVC, although Tupperware should work about the same. Feeding outside the cage is good too! As for names, that's up to you! The first thing that came to mind for me was "Nom" as in "Om nom nom," with the voracious appetite most Pacman's have :-p
