Default Cynops cyanurus setup

Here are some pictures of my first attempt at a full fledged Cynops cyanurus setup. I was doing a water change and decided to take some pictures. I would love to get your thoughts. Obviously its going to take some time before the plants fill in some more but I think its fun to watch that happen. The tank is only a week old. The newts seem to approve.

nice, but I would add many more plants. You could use floaters such as Elodea or hornwort. The newts will love it and it will help prevent algae outbreaks

If you look in the bottom right corner you will see some elodea sp. but I agree I need to pick up some more plants still. Added some cuttings from an amazon sword tonight and did some changes. I'll post a new picture soon.

Well they started laying eggs. I found about 10 in the cage tonight, just not sure if I want to pull and raise them right now. I still have a good 25+ N. kaiseri larvae going plus my I. alpestris look like they are going to lay and I'm still holding out hope for the Tylos. Too many newt babies!

Looks like the native stuff. Elodea canadensis

Yes it is the native stuff thanks.

Thought maybe I should put up a FTS, though I really should have cleaned the glass. Oh well I'll try again sometime.
