Marineland Portrait 5gal Riperium

Chewbacca773

So I ordered a Marineland portrait... the lid came broken... now I have 2 Marineland portraits. I'm going to try my hand at a riparium, as there is an internal sump filter system that works half-full.

I want it to mostly be a terrarium, with a pretty small underwater bit (like a 70-30 or 80-20 split) but I have no idea how to build height without totally eclipsing the underwater portion. Does anyone have ideas or experience with this kinda thing? I was thinking about building a shelf-like thing that can hold he substrate or just piling stuff until it comes out of the water... The tank is 9.63x~7x12 inches.

I will be updating the thread as I progress with the build

Shelf or cage-like structure is all i got for ideas to support the weight of the terrarium part and keep the two from mixing too much.
