10g paludarium choices??

Hello! So I’ve recently aquired a ten gallon aquarium, and I came across the idea of doing a paludarium. I would like to have some small fish in the aquatic section, preferably a small group of livebearers since that’s my specialty. Anyways, I would like to hear some suggestions of fish and semi aquatic amphibians or reptiles, of course I will only be choosing one. Thanks!!

I forgot to add that the land part will be kinda ‘floating’. By that I mean that it will be attached to the walls of the aquarium with a support in the water so that there is land, but also enough water space for the fish. Please let me know if you think this will work! Thanks!

Hey there. In all honesty 10g is fairly small. I'd be looking at blackwater nano species like chili rasboras, ember tetras, pencils, dwarf/croaking gouramis, bettas etc. Floating pads will help save a lot of space. What are you looking at for lighting? Also, what water volume are you looking at? Alot of this will determine stocking options.

Stock lightly and carry a big filter. - I don't have aquariums. I have ecosystems in a glass box. - Hygrophilaholic and hoarder of Anubias.
