Default 75 gallon paludarium inhabitants

I originally designed this tank for african reed frogs but I did so with some bad information and I thought that the frogs didn't need much height. The tank is seeded with sprigtails, isopods and earthworms but I would like to culture other feeder insects inside the tank also. In the water has a mix of plankton (daphnia, aphids, copeds, rotifers and more). I plan to have some killifish and cherry shrimp in the water that would hopefully subsist on the plankton and maybe some aquatic plants. for the land i would like something that is semiaquatic and that eats foods that i can culture in the tank. So I have a few questions.

1. What semi-aquatic animal(s) could I put in the tank.

2. What foods could I culture in the tank for the animal and fish to eat

3. What plants could I put in the paludarium to feed the animal and or fish/shrimp

4. What small predator could eat the baby shrimp and baby fish

5. Any suggestions and or constructive criticism
