Some questions

I have an extra 5.5g that I want to setup in the future for some dwarf frogs or hermit crabs. What kind of equipment do I need? I'll probably just fill the tank halfway with water. I never had hermit crabs before that were FW.

I really would like to do a nano riparium.

Same equipment for a riparium that you would need for an aquarium. Except, obviously you will need planters and planting media (clay pebbles or pumice). However, if you are doing a paludarium, you will probably want to have your return drip down the planting areas. Either that or use a mister (hand or automatic) to water the terestrials. You could also use a fogger (humidifier) to keep moisture constant above the surface of the water

What's a good house plant that you could use? Don't know about humidity but the water in my 10g evaporated a bunch every week.

You can do a riparium, just treat it like an aquarium plus semi-aquatics (think about more powerful light since you want to get light below the surface as well and you'll need to hang it higher to accommodate above water growth).

You won't be able to keep frogs in a 5.5, that's way too small! You could definitely make it a terrarium and keep miniatures. Visit dendroboard, they are specifically dealing with anything vivarium/frog and you can read there a lot!

Enjoy!
