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.

I have had newts as pets for 14+ years and have extensive hands-on knowledge of the care of newts. Currently I have a 20 gallon long(30"x12"x12") tank dedicated to my 3 Japanese Firebellies (1 male and 2 large females).

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.

If you have any questions(or info to add) feel free to email me.
