:D So a lady gave me a 10gallon tank. Came with a hood/light.

I was thinking about getting a newt. From what I have read, 10g is the smallest tank they should be in. So I would get one. Do they do ok on their own?

Also, she used this tank to house her baby pond gold fish in the winter months. It has a bit of calcium build up, but nothing that I cannot clean up.

I was wondering if there are any special cleaning/prep I need to do to make it safe for a newt?

Will a regular hood be good enough to keep them from getting out? Or will it need to be weighed down?
