I'm wondering what a good filter would be for my set up?

I have a 10g which I will convert to part water, part land for my chinese fire belly newt. I'm just not sure what type of filter to get? Can somone possibly provide pictures of what would work?

Something small should do the trick like a Fluval 1 Plus or similar.

See:

I would say you need either a bubble-driven filter (box filter or sponge filter or just an airstone), or else the smallest submersible you can find. The Duetto DJ50 has the lowest wattage, thus lowest heat production. Unfortunately, any motor-driven filter will heat up the water to some extent, and that's generally a bad thing for newts.
