New User- Vivarium Set up?

I have recently become very interested in terrariums, vivariums, and planted tanks. I am wanting to set up a vivarium in my 10 gallon tank. I have a leopard frog that I would like to put in the tank, and I would like to add some fish as well. My frog isn't very large, about golf ball size. I would love to have some plants in my tank as well! I am a college student so I am on a pretty strict budget. What would be some ideas for setting up my tank? I have a water fall filter for it now, and also a terrarium foam mushroom ledge that could be used in it as well. What type of fish should I put in? Would LOVE any and all input you all have! Thank you so much!

I would look into doing a false bottom you could hide some filtration under/behind. Pretty simple just look it up on google (just make sure your frog cannot get stuck!). If you could I would look into a larger tank like 20 long. Do a quarter to a third land with a sloping pool. Leopard frogs look really cool with that metallic bright green. Throw in plants and bam!

I may try to catch your fish if they are big enough

Thanks!!! I have heard a little about false bottoms. I will google it! I don't have the room for a larger tank. What type of plants would you recommend? Thanks for the help!
