Today I made this pics of one of my two years old Amami C.e.e.
This amazing one nearly the whole day is hunting for Hyalella azteca in the plants at the water surface.

And this two years old C.e.e. male begins to build out his breeding colour. Look at the shine on the tail.

That first one is easily the nicest cynops I've ever seen.

In the meantime the breeding coloration developed very well:

Do you feed them Hyalella or is it natural behaviour?

In all my tanks I have Hyalella azteca!
They reproduce there. So the newts always have something to hunt.

You must have loads of them.
I had a few of them but they were *all* eaten in no time. (could been something similar, not 100% it was the same)
Haven't seen them for sale yet - and harvesting them was a very intensive and maybe even prohibited thing to do.

Do you have a caresheet for them? Click the image to open in full size.
No seriously, do they live on algae and organic waste? I might try to breed some in a separate tank. I liked seeing my cynops hunt them down as well.

Joeri, I have a caresheet on my homepage, but only in German.
Look at "Futtertiere", then "Mexikanische Bachflohkrebse". With my "Translation" page, you can translate it.

German is no problem - I have a dictionary Click the image to open in full size.
I will give this a try some day - doesn't seem to be all that difficult. Guess I'll have to get me a starters batch or catch some again.

Thank you for your help
Joeri

Joeri, will be difficult for you to catch Hyalella azteca! For catching this "tropical" cancers you have to make a small trip! Click the image to open in full size.
What you catch in Belgium are Gamarus. These are difficult to care.

So why is gammarus difficult to care for?

They are more difficult to care for than Hyalella azteca, because they need very clean water with good oxygen and low temperatures. No problem in my garden in big tanks, but I always had problems in house.
