Alright well for starters they need 3/4 water so 1/4 land like a turtle dock would be fine filter, plants, gravle nothing small enough to swallow, blood worms do great feeding that’s what I feed my fire belly newts plus some crickets here and there to Chang up his diet provide a hiding place just like reptiles they will get stressed leading to a shorter life there like lizards except they are fully aquabetic you can also keep it with guppies in the water. That’s how my tank is except I also have fire bellie toads but I wouldent do it with your type of newt I think I got the basics oh and temperature should be 60 to 75 degrees have fun with your new pet/freind :-)
