Question Paludarium in a 10 gallon

I am that crazy guy who wants to have a paludarium in a tiny tank just for the heck of it. I would use pool filter sand and probably have some honey gouramis and/or livebearers and probably some cory catfish. I would make the left end of the tank the deepest and the right side the highest. I might get some little semi-aquatic frogs to inhabit the land part time. Any ideas on species of frogs? Maybe some little crabs? This wouldn't happen anytime soon, I just like to plan things out FAR in advance.

I would actually use a 20 gallon breeder or a 30.

frogs are not going to work in a open paludarium. they will find their way out into your house and more then likely die. you will need to put a lid on the tank.
