I like collecting and growing different plants, especially those that have interesting and unique features. I wanted to set up a carnivorous plant terrarium, mainly of pitcher plants and flytraps and maybe some a sundew or two, though I can gladly put those elsewhere. But I wanted to kno if I had a tank setup like that, would I be able to keep toads or salamanders? I have a 40 gallon breeder and I was thinking if I got a species big enough to be unable to fit in the plant traps and had a half land half water setup I'd be able to have a couple critters in there with it.

Most toads are terrestrial, so if the whole tank is going to be bog with open water and saturated soil, you'd be better off going with a semi-aquatic frog. As long as the plants aren't poisonous and the frog isn't too small you'll be fine.

It doesn't have to half water. I'd rather just have an all land enclosure and keep it moist. But as far as salamanders go I figured I'd need a body of water even if it's just a container of water. I'd rather have a newt than a road or even both if possible. Bottom line nothing is set in stone as far as the tank setup goes. So I'm open to suggestions.
