They're still aquatic and I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but what about making it a snail tank? Depending on where you live you probably won't need a heater which brings the cost down and feeding them won't cost much. You;ll just need a crushed coral substrate and calcium supplements here and there. Feeding them leafy greens is the best way and these can be found cheap in the supermarket. I have recently got some Golden Apple Snails and I loev them! I am considering setting up a tank just for snails because they're so fascinating.

I don't know much about reptiles I'm afraid to advise you on that.

I'm sure 22g would be great for some firebelly toads although I can't comment much on heating or feeding.

Enzo, If you check my post about "Found an Old Picture" you'll see the Oscars I had back awhile ago. In the lower left hand corner of that picture is a Beautiful Snail

Thanks! :)

In a 22g you could have quite a few snails, and different varieties. They may even breed and this would create even more colours etc. Personally this is what I would go with as it would be very interesting IMHO.

depending on the foot print of the 22G you could keep some kind of Tarantula.
the biggest, Goliath tarantula Theraphosa blondi will need a min footprint of 2ft x 1ft but some of the smaller species could be kept in as little as 1ft x 1ft.
