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.

Default Let's see your T marmoratus set ups

Newts a little bit of a new area for me... I've been keeping frogs for years, but just recently ventured into this area of amphibians. I have a pair of T marmoratus that are in a temporary set up and I'd like to get started on a nice, natural tank for them. So I was hoping some more experienced people could post pics of their set ups. Thanks!

Juvies are terrestrial, adult are usually kept in a aquatic set up with an island or a 50/50 set up.

Do you keep the adults aquatic all year round?

If you plan on keeping marms year-round in a single set-up, how large does the land area have to be? What about water? Would a 25:75 land:water type terrarium work?

Erin, I think it all boils down to personal preference. Some people keep adults aquatic year round, 50/50 water to land portion, or even completely terrestrial (except during breeding season). They're just so many possibilties with this species and thats why they're one of my favorites.

Thanks, Justin!

I guess I'm kind of trying to decide what the best newt for me would be... assuming I try out another species. I love the look of marms, and setting up a paludarium with a nice land area sounds exciting. I'm a little terrified about the prospect of having to put in a tank divider (just because of the possibility of leaks) but I don't think I can get around it.

Anyway, here's a silly drawing of what I have in mind to build:

I like to stare for hours at my newt set-ups, so I want to make sure the newts would be happy in something I would also want to look at.

I like the looks of what you had in mind and marmoratus definitely look like a possibility for an inhabitant. If leaks are a strong concern of yours then you could possibly use LECA (hydroton) where the dirt should be. I don't know if you have given that thought some consideration or not but it may be worth a shot.

Later,
Justin

I'm about to build a new aqua-terrarium for my T. marmoratus. The aquarium is 1.70m x 50cm x 50cm. This is the plan (its just a paint model) so you can see how it will be.
As soon as I start, I'll post pictures of it...
