Rep: eFaN has started on the right path
Default NewT inside HOF. with photos.

just got home the other day and was shocked to find that my newt was not inside his temporary tank! ive already secured the tank top tightly with a net . so i stripped the tank bare and check every corner of my room (hoping my cat have not gotten him first). wen finally i check my hang on filter (the last place i could think of) , it was there..

i put him back into the tank and observed him and this is what i saw..

anyone encountered this before? thinking of stuffing something into the mouth of the waterfall. i have since moved him into a larger tank and hoping this will not happen again haha.

Weird...._o
I dont really know if those filters have something inside that could harm the newt, but id really advice you to remove the filter if it triggers this kind of behaviour...
Also im unsure why the newt might be seeking to go up there...probably enjoying the current, but it could also mean its the only way the newt can find to scpe the tank, which means theres something wrong...you should probably check just to discard the possibility.

By the way, youve got a good hand with cameras

Yes, I'll bet he's playing in the current. I've had newts do that, and also, play in the air bubbles from the bubbler.

you could also stuff some filter material in the output so he can't climb in there anymore. It doesn't look like a place where he could harm himself though.

That tank looks REALLY small. How big is it?

I suspect he's trying to get to fresh water by heading upstream.

10gallons is more like it. All newts enjoy having a lot of space to swim :)
By the way, please check your private messages, you need to specify a complete name and a nationality.
Cheers.
