Creating a carnivore tank (where water meets land issue)

Recommended Posts

So i'm new to this place and new to using tanks or building vivariums etc for my carnivores or any plants. The most I have done are small scale terrariums. I have tons of tropical and carnivorous plants growing fine in pots. Anyways I recently received a 55 gallon tank that I am building a carnivorous bog in. My question is how can I get land to meet water without any kind of shelf? I'm going to build a slope from the left side of the tank in a way and water the right side but where that substrate meets water i will have plants so I don't want any kind of artificial barrier. My goal is to have around 20% of the tank full of water so not just 2-3 inches but more like 7-8 inch deep water.
