Question 10 gallon reptile tank ideas?

I have a 10 gallon (20"x10"x12"? stock 10 gallon glass) tank that specifically says that it can't be filled with water. It's too small for any of the terrestrial reptiles I was considering, and it has a locking screen top so I don't think I can keep the humidity at an appropriate level for amphibians.

I would, however, like to set it up for something. Can these tanks hold low levels of water (say, enough for a blackworm culture), or is leaking a certainty? Could I fill the bottom with growing media of some kind (I have hydroton/expanded clay pebbles in abundance) and grow emersed aquatics or bog plants using waste water from my fish and shrimp tanks?
