Newts are unpredictable and I will have to emphasize the temperature needs as well. Some newts actually need chillers and bettas need heaters.

"But Pontos, the great sea, was father of truthful Nereus who tells no lies, eldest of his sons. They call him the Old Gentleman
because he is trustworthy, and gentle, and never forgetful of what is right, but the thoughts of his mind are mild and righteous."

Are you looking for some art of your betta? I do digital drawings for $5-10! Click here to see some examples.

Nets need water that is in the low to mid 60s. Bettas need water that is 78-80 degrees. Definitely not compatible!!!!!!!

Plus unless the tank is well filtered (and even then it might be a problem) firebelly newts are poisonous and should really only be kept with its own kind

Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I found. I found that it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay- small acts of friendship and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Because I am afraid and he gives me courage.

Bullfrogs need temperate water. A pond is where they are most at home. Plus, when they get old enough they will eat a betta.
