|Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.|

I've kept ambystomatids for many years, and a few Necturus but this is my first foray into eurasian newts. In January I received some T. dobrogicus dobrogicus eggs from Michael Shrom. I've kept them in a well planted tank and experimented with feeding them both daphnia and bbs. Anyways, theyre now almost all sporting all 4 legs. I've separated the largest six into a new tank with some lowered water level, and a haul out area. One or two of them seem to have reduction in gill size, and one of them has the biggest gills I have ever seen. Seriously, theyre like 2x the height of the larva. I'll post a pic later. Is it too early to expect morphing? Some of what I've read on here seems to suggest it's around 6 months? What should I look out for? How deep is too deep? When should I move them completely to full terrestrial? When should I consider moving them back? Thanks, and thanks for your patience with me.
