Unhappy Help with land/water setup for whites tree frog

Hi there! I have had my Whites Tree Frog for about 2 years now and since I got him when he was smaller - I have been upgrading his tank throughout the years and he is now in a 10 gallon tank. Currently he has a cave to hid in during the day and sit on the top of at night, a large enough water dish to relax in and a water drip system to keep it moist in there.

I have an empty 29 tall gallon tank that I would like to make his new home. Originally I wanted a half water/half land tank so that I can keep my two guppies in the water side, but also create a sloping terrain so that the frog could go into the water and soak. I am now thinking after more research that maybe that would be too much water for the frog - I have read that he may drown in water over 2-3 inches? Is that correct? I put him in the sink and fill it up and let him relax in there, especially when he is shedding, but I have never seen him in any deeper water than that so I am scared.

I have been researching for many days on how to create a better environment for him. I do want a small water area in addition to his water bowl that will be on the land side. I would prefer not to get plexiglass or anything cut to fit in the tank, I want to create a slope in the tank down to the water. So far looks like plastic egg crates will be a good option - but where do you get these? I have seen a few on ebay but when I google it I don't find what I need. Any help please?

Do what I did to my terrarium. Just allow a slope so that if it is to deep then he can relax where he wants to and leave if he finds it is too deep. Each frog is different even if you ask a 100 people 9 out of 10 times youll get the same answer but there is still that 1 out of 10 people to remember.
