A spider seems like it would be fine as would most lizards I guess, though you would probably need more space. If you built enough space in, carolina anoles would probably be fine. I've seen them swim to shore when dropped in water.

Awesome! I love it! It is beautiful.
The other wonderful thing about it is that my husband would love it. He would pick something to live on the land (reptiles, amphibians, insects, arachnids... he loves them all). And I would pick the plants and fish. And then we would both live happily ever after... until his turtle eats my fish. Huh.
Well, maybe I will live my little dream through YOUR paludarium. What do you think of that idea?

Needless to say she's in an escape proof 32 gallon that's only hardscape.

Nice tank though, set up looks good, but I think a crayfish would be a bad choice. :/

I'm also tempted to put a crayfish in there, but I'm worried about the plants. I've heard they'll shred the plants.

Figured I'd give a quick update now that everything has settled.
That room is a bit of a mess, but you can see everything in the tank is doing well. Yeah, that's a heat rock in there. No, it isn't plugged in. I just haven't pulled it back out yet. Our furnace died for a day, so I put it in there to help toad stay warm.
One of my bamboo shoots didn't like the move much and has died, but there are living shoots coming out just below the surface so I haven't pulled it either.

|ric44||Nice look. I like it. What are your plans for fish?|

$25 50gallon low tech paludarium.
Just set it up today, the water hasn't settled yet.
I'm using organic soil underneath black gravel. The filter, about half the rocks, and all the plants are from the established 10 gallon that is being broken down for this. The fish will go in once the water is stable.
There is a missouri toad living up top, and hopefully soon, a lot more plants.
Here's what was there before.
I still need to add a black background.
