This is an enclosure I have been working on. It is a 20 gallon (tall) with great stuff/silicon background covered with coconut fiber and bits of tree bark. As you can see I've incorporated a few pieces of wood and coconut shell into the background. I've sectioned off a small part of the enclosure to provide land so amphibians would not get lost or caught underneath it and drown. I put a moss background behind the glass I installed to create this land portion. I intend to fill the water line to just below the land portion. In the lower left I will use a small Zoomed waterfall pump.

I would like to cover almost the entire land section with moss. Is this recommended. Should I put down a thin layer of forest dirt and place moss on top of this?

I am needing some advice on what to do next. I simply want to create a tropical looking enclosure with a variety of animals. I have thought about frogs, salamanders, newts, snails, fish but am unsure about what species can coexist.


- What kinds of fish get along with eachother and with frogs, salamanders, or newts?
- Do I need a tank heater?
- What kind of water plants are recommended (easy to find and nontoxic to fish and amphibians)?
- Can I install wild moss that I find and transport back to the tank?
- Will I need further filtration outside of the waterfall pump that I have?






Thanks in advance for all the advice,
Justin
