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.
