Default S. Salamandra vivarium suggestions

Hello everyone,

I was finally able to find a beautiful captive bred fire salamander for sale locally. I was wondering if anyone that has experience keeping the species could offer any insight on how to create the best possible enclosure. I plan on incorporating live plants and a lot of moss. I would like to add some type of small waterfall/pool in the corner for aesthetics. However, I've read that outside of breeding, fire salamanders would rarely use it and it could be a drowning hazard. Should I incorporate an automatic mister? Any substrate suggestions? All information is appreciated.

Thanks!
