differences?
 
What's the difference between a riparium, vivarium, and paludarium?

What would be the best approach to take with a 40 gallon hexagon with hopes for red eye tree frogs?

Riparium = Water section with no land, plants growing emersed either from the substrate or attached to the back wall. Designed to imitate a river bank/lake edge.

Paludarium = Water section and land section.

Vivarium = Land only.

With RETF I'd avoid deep water, maybe just a small, shallow area for them to soak in.
