First every paludarium!

I have always been an aquarium hobbyist so I decided to venture out into new territory. I have never worked with live plants or amphibians so I decided to give it a shot in this fire belly toad paludarium. Everything in this tank is DIY. Any pointers or general thoughts on my setup? (The lighting is poor in these pictures)

cool, you have anything below the sand? I'm assuming it is structured to allow him to get on land?44

Looks cool. Heads up, the plant in the front right corner looks like an Anubias. You'll want to keep the rhizome (Green tube that the leaves and roots grow out from) above the substrate. If you bury the rhizome it rots, gets mushy and the plant will die. Just pull up gently until its not buried and your set

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
