Creatures for My 5 Gallon?

Hi Guys! I have a spare 5.5 Gallon tank and i want to keep some type of semi-aquatic amphibian or something. Especially something that can be compatible with other amphibians. (I get bored quickly if there is only 1 type of creature in a tank.) I never took care of amphibians but I did take care of a crested gecko once, so please keep the creature(s) a beginner style. And I prefer the water to be shallow, not deep. (About 1-3 In of water.)

A 5 gallon tank has such a small footprint more than one of anything is pushing it....instead of cramming "critters" into any empty tanks you have laying about maybe research an animal you like and get or maybe make a bigger tank for them? Just my opinion

Most amphibians should be kept in a single sp. tank.

You could have a newt terrarium. The eastern newts would be fine. 1red bellied newt.

You still need to have a filter. The tetra repto filter would work.

Frogs and newts don't work because the frogs would eat the food and the newts would starve.
