    You could go with a semi-aquatic or total aquatic providing there are floating platforms or plants for them to get completely out of the water.

    Re: firebelly toad Setup

    Here are a couple of pics of my set up from the top and front...






    This is a 20l that houses 4 fire-bellied toad.

    I started by gluing in a piece of plexiglass, using aquarium sealer to separate land from water. On the land side, I put in a layer of gravel topped by a piece of plastic mesh. On top of the plastic mesh, I used eco-earth. The plants are all live. The water is about 3-1/2" deep and filtered with a Tetra Whisper 10i filter. I have a low-watt basking lamp to keep the temps in the mid 70's (when needed) and use a grow light for the plants.

    Hope this helps.
