Default Fire belly newt new set up?

Okie i think i'm going to change my set up. i would like a more natural looking tank for my newts. also i have had them a year now so i'm thinking more water? how deep? what kind of wood is used in tanks? do you have to treat it? also i'm using a fluval 1plus filter but i don't think its very good and would like to upgrade but with out upsetting my newts with the currents. anyone recomemnd a filter?

my tank is 2ftx1ft
this is my existing set up

Personally I think the amount of water you have in there now is just fine, but it wouldn't hurt to add an inch or two more to it. Here is an article on woods that are safe for tanks, it should help you out alot.

I would increase the water level quite a lot, the newt will apreciate it inmensely.
