Welcome to this easy-to-use newt website. Make sure to check out the pictures. If you have questions on topics not covered or need help identifying your newt email me There's also a great
setup section that is about as easy, cheap and totally sufficent way to keep newts.
Inside the aquarium I have between 3-6 varieties of plants which provide tons of fresh oxygen and keeps the water's ph in check. Among the other animals I have an albino catfish to eat the food particles on the bottom the newts won't eat, as well as a few small feeder guppies for eating floating particles. I have a chinese algae eater (sucker fish) from time to time, but i have to remove them because they grow too large and disturb the newts too much after about 6 months. As for a filter I have a great, easy-to-clean, submersible underwater filter made by Fluval.
