I thought I'd ask first before I purchase a newt.
I went to the pet store yesterday and saw a newt. I thought it looked cool for an aquarium. I was thinking, since it was in a water with african dwarf frogs, that I could put one in my aquarium. I have a couple question about them.
Would they settle well in a community tank with fish?
What do you feed them?
What should the lay-out of the tank be?
What should I do to make them happy?
Could I keep a solitary newt in a community tank?
How do you care for them (tank size, temp and ph, etc.)
Here are the fish I have: 4 Cherry Barbs, 2 Corydoras Catfish and 1 otocinclus. Also, the water in my tank is all the way to the top.
Please list any preparation that I would do.
I THOUGHT I WOULD ASK FIRST BEFORE PURCHASING!!
Thank you very much for your help.
I too thought they were land animals, only needing part water like toads and some frogs. If you know what specie it is, try doing a search on that particular one. Hats off to ya for asking before buying too!! Don't ever trust a pet store or their employees, better off doing your own research first. Good luck!
