So my new worry about my small colonly of T. Shanjing is that i am underfeeding them. i feed them everyother day with night crawlers, giving each newt one section of night crawler that is between 1 and 2 inches long. they seem to have no problems with the length of the earthworm peices, but should i offer more?
They seem pretty content, four of them are eating voraciously and am i planning on moving them to a communal enclosure probally by the end of august, but i dont want them to suffer from malnutrition from me not feeding them enough. The other two are being problematic (see my other thread, but i am going to try some new things to get them to eat this week).

I feed mine as much as they want, they especially like earthworms and waxworms. They can use the extra food because they're weakened from there journey from China to here. I don't think you can overfeed them. So I would give them as much as they want. Good luck with yours.
