I named my newt Weasley after Harry Potter's best friend. Partly due to his color. Partly due to the fact that he pulls disappearing tricks depending on his level of comfort.
When threatened or in danger, these guys excrete poison. So it's best to be aware of that in case you have other animals in the house. Other than that, keep a variety of shaded and sunny locations, both wet and dry, and let your newt do it's thing. Super easy to care for. No complaints whatsoever.
