Talking Newbie (hello) and questions.

Hi. New to the board.
Bit of background. Before I went into Veterinary nursing (which is more geared towards mammals), I was a huge exotic animal enthusiast.
I had about 15 tanks, even a 120 gallon planted tank and fish, reptiles and amphibians galore (I just have mastiffs now!)
Anyhoo....
I've been out of the midst of exotics for about 7 years and I just came into possession of a 40 gallon tank and a filter with a lid. That's all.
I have a particular fondness for frogs, salamanders and newts but I would love to have some kuhli loaches as well....has anyone had success with a semi-aquatic aquarium with amphibious reptiles and algae eaters or small, interesting species of fish? I'd ideally love a giant pleco (I loove plecos), but I don't see how I could effectively give a pleco enough room to swim freely and provide a comfortable environment for firebellies etc.
I'm thinking I'd like to undertake a semi-aquatic aquarium with emergent structures.
Any thoughts, people?
Nice to meet you!

Welcome! Lots of people have had success (but I agree you probably can't accommodate a large pleco). Look here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/vivarium-terrarium/

Thanks...
I've just got a couple of little barbs and a cory and I'm working on getting the tank established. I'll only get a little pleco...I promise.
They've outlawed my favorite species of salamander here, which is awful.
But frogs next week.
Thanks again!
