Yeah, he should be old enough to be kept in an aquarium now. He looks healthy and well fed, so he should be fine, even if he's off his food in protest for a while until he gets used to the water.

Thanks Chinadog. It will be interesting to see if he does protest by refusing food as he's quite food motivated lol. He comes running when he sees me just in case I have more food for him!

Wow, just as I am getting ready to move the 'newtlet' to a more aquatic environment, what do I spot in my big tank but a newt larva scooting by the front of the tank! I'll leave him be for now. He's very cute, gills and all.

The eft 'surfaced' in my big tank yesterday. I am still in the process of setting up another small aquarium with water for his big brother/sister to go into, so I have yet another set-up for the new "eftlet". He's so teensy! Need to get him eating - will try again this morning. Here are some comparison pics of the growing 'newtlet' and the new 'eftlet' (same water dish)...

Its funny how baby Cynops seem to grow painfully slow until you compare them to a fresh morph. It's then you realise they've actually been growing very fast.

Very true! The 'newtlet' morphed in March of this year so it really hasn't been that long, but he's so much bigger and more developed than the new eft. I'm happy to say that the new eft ate this morning, makes me feel much better as he wasn't accepting food from the tweezers yesterday. Hopefully he'll grow big and strong too.

Sorry it's been a while, had so much on recently I haven't really had a chance to reply properly. There's 16 efts now all eating well and there are another 5 that will be morphing soon. They have a water bowl in with them, but they don't use it. I'm going to wait until they've all morphed and are a bit older then I'm going to have to try introducing water into their tank properly. Not really sure what I'm doing with that still....
Can't upload any photos at the moment, but will try to soon!

They look fantastic, well done! :)
You can always see straight away if Cynops babies are doing well by the fatness of their tums!
