    I was wanting a freshwater aquarium but i wanted something unusual. Something besides the normal fish. Im talking about things like frogs (like african dwarf frogs), crabs, i also know there are some small eel species. Maybe some that can be housed with other non-fish, or even some fish that looks very weird or cool.

    if you dont mind brackish water, an island set up would work well with a colony of fiddler crabs

    Speaking of brackish, you can't get much more unusual than mudskippers.

    If you go brackish you could try a dragon goby. They're pretty cool looking.

    Just set up a 55g brackish with 2 anableeps [4 eyed fish], want to add a mudskipper if i can find one.

    For this build i was wanting mostly freshwater fish consider i might add gecko's or a tree boa in aswell. But i might eventually have to give in to temptation and build a brackish water paludarium aswell.

    Anyone know what fish can be kept with fire-bellied newts?

    One fish i just found that i might get is called a 'freshwater lionfish' or sometimes also called a 'stonefish'

    From what I'm reading, those are brackish/marine too and don't do well long term in freshwater, in spite of the name.

    Now you've got me really wanting to find something weird that would do well in a freshwater paludarium.

    your best bet is four-eyed. Anableps

    Maybe a small species of chameleon with vampire crabs and shrimp?

    Small frogs might work with a cherry shrimp colony, they may eat a few though. But they breed quickly, especially if you add moss to the tank.
