Fire Belly Newt in a Fluval Edge, will it work?
So I have a Fluval Edge (6 gallon) tank currently empty and am considering putting a Fire Belly Newt in it. I have read/researched a ton of information on keeping them, as I always do. I have read a lot of sites that say for housing it should be 2-3 in a 10 gallon and more = more gallons obviously. I have found very FEW sites/care sheets that discuss the minimum required amount for just one newt. But I have however found numerous sites where somebody has a 5 gallon (sometimes even plastic) tank set up for their Fire Belly newt.
The Fluval Edge is a 6 gallon tank, but, while keeping a decent height, isnt as tall as some tanks. This allows it to have a good amount of surface on the bottom (a good length and width to it).
Im curious what your oppinions are on keeping a Fire Belly Newt in a Fluval Edge and also, if it is considered good to keep them singularly or if they need to be in pairs/groups or if it doesnt matter, etc...
Any other information provided is also appreciated.
If you arent familiar with the edge, just google Fluval Edge and check images.
