    Welcome swampthing! To answer your question, there are a variety of carnivorous plants (CPs) that can fit into a 10 gallon tank. A majority of drosera (sundews), pinguicula (butterworts), utricularia (bladderworts), Venus fly traps, and a few prostrate sarracenia and cephalotus can fit in a 10 gallon tank. I like utilizing a false bottom to allow humidity to remain high. There are a few threads that have different tank styles so you can choose a style that best fits you. Peter D'Amato's book, The Savage Garden gives excellent terrarium choices as well.

    swamp thing - I completely agree with Amp. Good advice. I might add that I had my entire collection of plants inside a 10-gallon terrarium for quite awhile. There are many options, especially if your interest is sundews as mine is.
