It may not be great for you but it is for me, I'm building a Paludarium!

Im hoping to house fish, and a musk turtle and maybe some crested geckos (maybe)

Hey make sure you sanitize all that stuff, usually by boiling...and are you planning on a false bottom, what kind of background, filtering the fish water...
The more early planning the better, it saves a lot of time, money, and effort down the road...

Forgot to ad that, i sanitized the wood by soking it for a few days in water then in vinegar for a half hour then in water again i also boiled the rocks and scrubbed down the brom.

Filtration will be just a normal submersible filter and a water heater

Because the logs will act as a barrier and i will be siliconing the logs in i will be going with the hydroton method, and there is not enough room to do a false bottom.

as for a background i am going with a tree fern background as it is the easiest and simplest

fish, i haven't decided on what type of fish yet.

the water end will have sand and a lot of water plants

water plants i have not decided on yet

Also I have been researching dart frog vivariums and paludariums for the past year and a half and how to execute them, and this is not my first, I have also done a ten gallon that i will post pics of soon, if i can get any good ones.
