Pet Ideas, for a 10 Gallon Tank?

Back in January I bought a 10 Gallon fish tank, set it up, cycled it, I had everything ready for it, however the aquatic pet that I was getting from a friend passed before my tank was ready. For about a month now I've been thinking of what to do with it. I still have the filter running and the lights on timer and everything. The point is, I really want to get a pet, I was thinking a frog, but the only full aquatic frog that I found was ADFs and ACFs. Soooo maybe a semi-aquatic frog? I don't want something common though, so maybe a newt? Could that even fit in a 10g? And please, don't say Axolotls because they're illegal in New Jersey. :( Any ideas?


I already have a dog and a bird; thank you very much. :)
