    I don't see any problem with putting it in the newt tank. IME my guppies have never eaten java moss.

    Guppies wont eat live plants

    Java moss is one of the easiest plants to grow, if something will grow usually its java (there are exceptions though)

    I have a lot in my 55 Viquarium. I use it as a ground cover in the land area to cover the gravel. It will attach to everything, gravel, sand, filters, glass, decor, anything.

    The only problem I can think of is if it becomes very dense the newts could get tangled in it, but it would have to be very dense to do that.

    If enough gets in there it can clog stuff up.
