hmm, a 10 dollar tank means it is only the tank and nothing else. THis isnt good. You should buy the 27 dollar tanks with a hood an a light to prevent jumping, stop bad things from going into the tank, looks better, and helps slow down evaporation. WIth this new tank i wouldnt get any new fish but transfer your newt here, maybe get another newt to give this one some company. With newts you HAVE to have a hood otherwise they climb out and dry up and in the end die. Plus they need a humid environment that a hood can help give. Spending 17 dollars more for all these good things?!?! i dont know anyone who wouldnt.
By the way almost every aquarium fish will jump, just because its never done it before or its a bottom dweller, it can and will jump. Better be safe than sorry.
A newt tank is also a lot cheaper. YOu dont need plants, you dont need any high tech filters, all you need is gravel and a way for your newt to go on land (your lego thing would work fine or you could pile rocks that go out of water, whatever works for you.
