Tom, so you'd advise dropping the water quantity..
That's no problem.
No, a foot would be fine, a deep pool is beneficial to the reps I mentioned just they need a good 6ft height so the enclosure would have to be extended and it would have to be something other than mesh to keep humidity in.

Edit: Personally I would build a second steel or sealed wooden frame (the same as the first) without a floor but with a roof and sit it on top of this one. You could then have the foot or so of water as you planned and a good 5ft of air space above this with various branches, ledges, etc. you then have the top section with frontward opening/sliding doors for access.
