I just have to say that planning a setup like that, indoors, with children, is pretty brave.

Do you plan on having any critters on the terrestrial portion?

Depending on how you build your terrestrial portion, you may be able to build some lights into it, or use some on the rim of the tank, so you don't need quite so much power for the aquatic plants.

I would think that whatever you grow on land wouldn't need quite as much light.
