Dragon's ten gallon

This is my Betta's home, which he shares with two firebelly newt companions. Any comments, questions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

What temperature is the tank?
Bettas are tropical and newts are cold water animals.
70 degrees F should be the maximum temperature of a newt tank and 75 is the minimum for bettas. I would separate them to ensure a high quality of life for the newts and fish. That is a lovely tank though. c:

76 is minimum for bettas and 78-80F is ideal. Also fluctuations are a problem.

I don't see a thermometer or heater..

I would add some taller plants that reach the surface for your fish to lay on. Mine sleep at the top in their plants.. my one with live plants sleeps in a bed of floating elodea.

I'd be really careful with the newts and the betta.. that might not work out..

+1. Newts and bettas are not good tankmates at all.
