6g Eclipse system vivarium

I just purchased a 6g eclipse from a garage sale for 5$ I do not want another fishtank (4 currently set up 3 planted) and I was thinking about a vivarium or paludrium, would the lighting be enough for one?. And will the filter still work

Question, How much water are you looking at having in the tank ? The reason I ask is because the pumps on those are pretty small and getting it to draw a column of water near the bottom of the tube is going to leave you with a trickle of water.
Worth an easy test though, and if you have not tested the pump you might want to before you get too far along.
