So today I bought a 10 gal to breed fish to feel my axolotl occasionally.

I was thinking guppies, but then I thought white clouds.. and then I was thinking ... i've always wanted another amphibian. So I was thinking, would I be able to house a newt in a white cloud breeding setup?

It's okay if I can't. Just was thinking if there is any way... haha.

Thanks !:)

What is a white cloud breeding setup like? And would the fish be in the setup as well, or just the newt?
If you want a firebelly newt then yes you could keep them in a 10 gallon in a planted tank, but it is hard to say if it being with the fish would be safe. I looked up "white cloud breeding tank" and looked at the pictures, and there seemed to be a lot of different ones.
So what kind of tank were you thinking? ( i.e. planted, rocks, etc. ) -Seth

If you want to keep newts, set up the ten gallon tank with the newt's requirements in mind. Then once it's up and running with the newts are settled in I can't see adding a few guppies and letting them breed doing any harm.
If your heart is set on fire bellies of any kind, remember you will most likely have to buy juveniles and raise them to adulthood before they are ready for an aquatic life. Buying wild caught adults from a petstore is risky at best and supports the deplorable way these animals are treated.
Anyway, I think that if you take the plunge and buy some baby newts to raise, by the time they are aquatic adults you wont want to have the fish in there detracting from you happy newt family! ;)

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
