I’m using a sponge filter for my newts enclosure and I was wondering if it’d still work if I took the weighted base off? I’m putting it Behind the background and it doesn’t fit with the base.

The base keeps it from floating. If you can keep it down then it's fine. Alternatively you can buy a sponge filter with a suction cup like this:

    with axolotls would I basically have to keep buying and buying new axolotls to prevent inbred breeding which costs a lot of money??

    Not necessarily but if you’re wanting to continue to grow your breeding capacity then yes. Breeding axolotls isn’t a cheap hobby nor is it a get rich quick scheme. It costs a lot of money and time and deditcation

    Would Chinese fire belly newts be more or less inclined towards an aquatic eft set up versus Japanese . I'm raising them and have abandoned the terrarium at about 5 months old and switched to the aquatic setups you describe. I'm wondering if I could do this as soon as they morph?
