Suggestions for a 5gal,5.5gal,10gal& 15gal?

Now that I only have one fishtank (a 20 gal) up& running& a few empty aquariums I decided I wanted more reptiles or amphibians.
I was going to have a bunch of fish aquariums,but I want to have just that one& make it look really nice.

That being said,I do want pets to inhabit my other aquariums.
What I want are suggestions of creatures I can house in a :

5 gallon-
5.5 gallon-
10 gallon-
15 gallon-

The more suggestions the better,I can research & decide what to go with after I finish my research
I intend on getting inverts in the near future,but right now I want to house reptiles& amphibians.
I know 5& 5.5gals are really small aquariums,but surely there must be something that is really small& can be HUMANELY kept in a terrarium that size? (if not i'm keeping it for spiderlings). I don't want to put something in an aquarium when they really need more room.Being humane comes first.I'm sure to find a use for the smaller aquariums eventually.I'm just really into reptiles& amphibians& would love to "up" my "collection". (they are addictive )

For the 5 and 5.5....

-African Dwarf Frogs! Ok, so they're aquatic but they aren't fish .
-One or two Mantella frogs?
-A small Salamander or Newt
-Fiddler Crabs (they aren't reptiles but whatever XD)

For the 10-gallon...

-A Paddletail, a couple Firebellies, or some Oregon Newts
-Firebelly Toads
-Green, White, or White-Lipped Treefrog
-African Clawed Frog
-American Toads
-Leopard or African Fat-Tailed Gecko
-Mourning Geckos
-Green or Brown Anoles

For the 15-gallon...

-Crested Gecko!!!!!!!
-Tokay Gecko
-Red-Eyed Treefrog
-Day Gecko (the smaller ones)
-A group of Dart Frogs <3

Hehe...I have an obsession with amphibians and geckos .

But seriously, there are way too many reptiles to list. Maybe you can go to a petstore or look online and find a bunch that you like. Then you can research and see if they'd be a good choice .

Do you want something you can handle or something more to look at? Oh, and are you interested in snakes too? I left those out...oops.

For the 15-gallon maybe you could look into garter snakes? Hmm.

But really, you should get a Crested Gecko . Hehe.

I love anoles and also want those in the future.

I must warn you tho,NEVER listen to the pet store...they have no clue what they are talking about when it comes to the green and brow anoles.I found that out big time and had to do my own research.I found out they are not as easy to care for as the pet stores make them sound.They are good for an experianced beginner,but not a beginner (if that makes sense) in my opinion!

Me either.I had to tell employees things on more then one occassion!

Pet City is one,they all know me there and know I know what I am talking about.They also know I go in JUST to look at the rats and mice sometimes and they are all pretty nice.Actually that store is one of the FEW that are decent.
