i would not recommend doing that.........for many reasons

newts do best in a species only tank

31 Betta Males
12 CrownTail
7 HalfMoon
5 DeltaTail
4 DoubleTail
3 Veil Tail


44 Betta Females
Round, Crown, Spade

65 gallon
55 gallon
35 gallon
2 - 20 gallon
4 - 10 gallon
16 - 1.5-2 gallon

MTS has struck, resistance is futile

They also need land and water, much like a turtle, so you could only fill your tank up 1/2 way. I've only seen then housed with goldfish.

I did some google search and some people have kept newts with bettas. Best advice would to do a google seach yourself and see what others have said. I dont know if their poo is toxic or the slim on their body is.

Fire Belly Newts are quite messy, please keep that in mind. But in a large tank like that, I think it should be okay.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2
