Newts

I don't know if anyone else has tried this, but my Betta lives with a pair of firebelly newts. They are very peaceful together and even share live food meals without aggression. Has anyone else worked with these two species?

Yes. I have Betta and Firebelly newts living together.

I have a 20 Gallon long tank with a betta, tadpoles, two fire belly newts and a paddle tail newt all living together happily. I feed my newts blood worms and the betta normal food.
Also, I have a different betta ,Eragon, that looks just like yours!

Cool! :D I'm glad to know I am not the only one! May I ask what kind of Tadpoles? I hear that Firebellies are notoriously difficult to breed...

Be careful of bullfrogs! Even when small they could eat a betta home.

Firebelly newts like temps in the 60s, and will tolerate the low 70s. Bettas need temps in the high 70s-80. They are not compatible.

+1. And even if you don't see aggression now, all it takes is one hungry newt who isn't looking at what he puts in his mouth.

But the temperature is the biggest issue here.
