Default What toys would be good additions to my tank? Is my tank okay?

I just got my Syrian hamster Friday night, and I was mistakenly on the impression that hamsters don't need a lot of "boredom breakers". I plan on DIYing a lot of wood chews and cardboard interactable toys, but I'm not sure what Syrians tend to prefer. I also am not sure how many toys I should give her. Do they like having clutter on their floor space? I've seen a few DIY forage toys I'm going to try and make from spare oak board as well.

Otherwise, currently her set up is: wodent wheel 12 inch and sand bath on a DIY oak wood platform, a ceramic hide, 12-15 inch deep Uber paper bedding (It's really dusty so I'm gonna get kaytee from now on), torn up 1-ply toliet paper, DIY mesh lid and stand, DIY 3 chamber hide out on it's own platform, a ramp (will add better grips once I get safe glue), a water dish, a food bowl (but I plan on mainly scatter feeding). It's a 75g standard aquarium by the way!

So far, she's been burrowing so frequently! I just gotta tell you guys it was so fun to lay under the tank since she made a whole tunnel system at the bottom her first night. It was really fun to watch! I know they need a lot of space, but it was still kind of shocking to see how quickly she used all the space!
