Also females need to have a aquatic period to expel eggs if necessary. I just don't feel they are a good beginner newt because they aren't available CB very often, and obviously we don't want them buying WC newts.

I agree.. They get fairly large and can be difficult to maintain at times. I wouldn't recommend Tarichas as a starter. And like Seth said, it's super difficult to find CB.

I think axolotls are really good because they're available everywhere and are pretty hardy. Tigers are very hardy as well but most are WC. But axies are probably the best IMO.
Taricha granulosa
