It'd have a false rock wall dividing the tank in half longways and then some small entrances along the bottom leading to the back, which will be in another room and I can feed all the fish there equally. Just a dream

Nils - Is this close to what you were dreaming? A pic of the late Takashi Amano and one of his creations.
Dream fish? Nothing with scales but if we are talking amphibians, then oddballs such as sirens, amphiumas, olms, mudpuppies, and hellbenders come to mind. And the Eastern Red Spotted Newt. Why the last one? It is certainly not exotic and quite common in some locales. Something about them (from way back when) reminds me of why I got into all of this.

For you Nils. Paludarium is the term you're looking for, I think. I've had this one saved in my phone for a while

I got to cross a dream fish off the list today with some hillstream loaches. I'm building them a nice riverine home.
