I bought an entire set-up on Craigslist. It came with a 20g tank, a fountain/filter, plants, and 5 newts.
- Easy to care for.
- Nice to look at.
- They stay small, so you don't have to worry about them outgrowing their habitat.
NOT SO GOOD:
- Not much, really. There is minimal maintenance and feeding. That's about it.
Newts are great for beginners to start learning about keeping pets. They require little maintenance and expense. And it is easy to sell the set-up if you choose to. I never grew attached to the newts, even as a kid. I eventually sold the set-up.
