Question Fire Belly Newts and Red Spotted Newts

I'm planning on setting up a tank for my Chinese Fire Belly Newt and then getting more CFBNs. I read in a book (I forget what the name was) that red spotted newts and CFBNs can live together. And I've decided that IF they can live together I'll put some red spotted newts in too. Would this be ok?

No. I am guessing you got your CFBN's from a pet store and in that case they would be wild caught. If you got notos from a petstore then they would be wild caught too. These two species come from two different continents and could introduce different diseases together. They are both similar in size but besides introduction of diseases, they may be aggressive towards each other.
This link shows different species mixing disasters including an eastern newt+Chinese firebelly newt(disaster 23).
On the top of the page it shows a male eastern newt trying amplexus with a chinese firebelly newt which could drown the chinese firebelly newt because it is not used to this kind of courtship.
Hope this helps you.

Ok thanks! I won't put them in with each other
