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.
