Question Winter Cooling Period for Breeding S.s.s?

Hello all,

It has been a while since I have posted on the forum xD

I need advice for breeding Salamandra salamandra salamandra, of which I believe I have one pair.

I live in San Jose, CA; where winter temperatures range from 40F at night and 60F during the day. December is cooler, with upper 50's as common high temperatures in my area. There are a some days where the nighttime temperature drops below 40F. It rarely dips below 32F.

I keep them in my insulated garage which can get to 45F at its lowest.

1. Will this be sufficient in winter cooling?
2. Anything in particular I should keep in mind for breeding?
3. Do the animals require extra food? Any specific food items?
4. How deep should the water bowl be? Currently it is at a depth of ~1 inch.

They (2) are currently in a simplistic set up(they trampled many, many plants) with dirt and 4 hides. The animals are fed homegrown European nightcrawlers and occasionally Eisenia fetida (they accept them).

Thanks in advance.
