Which tank for a Paludarium build?

Willj626

This will be my first paludarium build. I've been wanting to build one for a while and now that my college has moved entirely online (which has really upset me) I have nothing but time and the resources to do a project like this since I don't have to worry about moving into my dorm- I figure doing a project like this might be a good way for me to spend my time and distract myself for a while. I have a spare 10 gal tank and a 30 gal tank I could use for this project, I'm not sure which would be better however. So my questions:
-10 or 30 gal?
-what are the basics for building it?
-how do I layer it (the substrates for the land section)?
-should the land section drain into/be in contact with the water section?
-what are some good plants that will grow in the transition zone?
-how good are filter waterfalls? could I build my own?
-what are some good tips and advice I should know in general?
Thanks for any help or info provided!!!
