Personally I would build a second steel 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.
Yes that would be nice but the steel frame along with the water proof paints was neither a quick or cheap build.. Although this second one wouldn't need to be anywhere near as strong as the first I was hoping for a quick switch over to reps.
I will look into building another frame though as I like your thinking . A floor to ceiling enclosure would be sweet!

But for now maybe water dragons, basilisks etc are not the way to go... Maybe loosing the water and different a inhabitant .
