Hello, I'm a first-time poster on this forum, I had a question to ask some of you more experienced herp keepers. I am interested in turning my 29 gallon tank into a semi tropical vivarium witht the eventual introduction of one or two anoles, nothing too major, and nothing that is going to get taken out (or really want to get taken out) and pet and handled. I've been reading up on anole's requirements but was wondering what the consensus was on water. I was considering doing a waterfall with a little stream made out of corkbark (if I get really ambitious). I'm not talking doing a lot of water like a turtle tank, the majority of the bottom surface would be land, with approprite climbing plants, branches, etc. Anoles need partial moisture, but is this going too far? Are there risks to the anoles besides just the threat of drowning, or is there something here I havn't caught?

All ideas and comments are welcome, thanks.
