At present, all 4 of my Chinese Firebelly babies ( they morphed 5 months ago)are healthy, eating well, and growing every day!

Up until now, I've been using a turkey baster to clean out the tank each day. I'm wondering if it is possible to begin to use a filter in their tank now? 3 of my 4 newts are mostly aquatic now, with just the smallest preferring to rest on land most of the time, so I have increased the water level a little bit each day. Another concern of mine is that over the past couple of days, there seems to be many bubbles floating on the water's surface, and I'm just wondering if this is something I should be concerned about?

Thanks again for everyone's help!

Yeah, I think you could start using a filter now, but make sure it doesn't produce a strong current. As for the bubbles I think those may be protein http://www.caudata.org/cc/faq/FAQwat.shtml
