Default My first C. pyrrhogaster offspring so far

Hi everyone,
these are my first newt babies. The parents are youngsters I only got last May when they were tiny terrestrial creatures. The first couple of larvae morphed at about 28mm but some of the ones remaining in water already have 30mm so I'm hoping there will be bigger morphs in the future.
The first one has been eating chopped earthworm and is looking good. The other ones are only freshly morphed so it's hard to tell how they'll do. I really hope these little guys grow well.

I had eggs from 2 females and I could see the difference. I believe all the healthy ones are from one female. The other one's eggs were getting mouldy in the beginning. Then they were developing but with malformations and if they managed to grow into bigger larvae, they got bloated. Well, at least she doesn't know or care.

Here's some photos:

Are the C. pyrrhogasters easier to breed? I am in the market for a new species and I had these when I was younger. I really like them.

They are very easy to breed but as with other species that have tiny metamorphs, raising the juveniles is a bit of a challenge at first.

...oh how I hate the misspelling in the title of this thread... I check everything I write a couple of times but didn't check the header...and it couldn't be changed after posting...

I just got another land invader a couple of minutes ago (number 6) and he seems a bit bigger that the previous ones. It might just be my imagination but they seem so confused and scared when they first emerge.

I am going to look for a copy of the book "The War with the Newts" by Czech writer Karel Capek now (just in case). It might be time to read it and be prepared as humans are getting seriously outnumbered here - number 16 is morphing now

Here are some recent photos:

I managed to take some more photos of my crèche. I still have 3 larvae, 2 of which are very advanced. Some of the older newtlets are nicely plump now and seem a little less shy.

Hi Molch, the parents weren't hibernated even though their tank was in a room which isn't very warm over winter (maybe between 15-17°C, not really cold). I had a lot of courtship behaviour for quite a while but there were no eggs. Then we had to temporarily move the newts into a smaller tank and the females started laying. I don't know if it was the change that made them finally lay eggs.
