Default Triturus Cristatus larvae photos

Hi everyone, back in June I purchased some Triturus Cristatus eggs off Charles Snell. Here is some photos of them. They hatched June 9th-16th. They are currently feeding on: Daphnia, frozen bloodworms, mosquito larvae and small pierces of chopped earthworms. I have 7 Triturus Cristatus larvae and hope to morph all 7 of them. Any feedback and advice would be appreciated:)

Welcome to the site! :)
You should be fine if they're big enough for worms, I'd just say make sure you separate any that grow faster than the others, they can soon start ripping the smaller one's bits off when they're hungry.

Hi and thanks for the the comment!

I now have 3 separate containers. I separated my biggest larvae last night from the others.

I have also noticed that the Ones which were in the container with the biggest larvae have small nibble marks on the end of their tails so I've separated him from the others as he/she seems to be intimidating them. Also I have done it because I've researched that they tend to bite each other's tails due to overcrowding. So for now I'm going to keep max 3 per container but as they get bigger I might have to keep 1 in each container or 2 in a container.

Hi everyone, yesterday I upgraded my triturus crostatas sizes of containers which they were in. In each container there are 3 larvae except for one container which has my 2'5 inch larvae in by himself. Tomorrow I go away for 2 weeks to Crete in Greece and just wanted to share some photos and salvage any last minute feedback and advice anyone would have. In the tank you may be able to see daphnia, I have added lots of daphnia to keep them going for a few day and after that they will be fed on frozen bloodworms. A member of family will be doing this.

When feeding them should they be handled with tweezers or should I just put a few broken bloodworms in each day? There is also some more daphnia in my garden need be.

They're looking great. :)
When I feed frozen bloodworms I let them defrost in cold water and just gently tip them in so they spread out on the bottom. If you drop them in and they're still block shaped it's easy for the biggest/hungriest larvae to hog them all before the others get a look in.
