Default Need some advice for rough skinned newts

Hello, I recently got some rough skin newt eggs and they are starting to hatch out and I need advice for a tank set up for them for when they morph. I also need help figuring out what foods to feed them I have a brine shrimp hatchery set up, white worm culture and dwarf isopods.

Blackworms are also good. I start an egg tank by putting water and some crinkled leaves in. I use the "dirty tank" method. You can do a search on this site. Others use a "clean tank" method. I don't change the water much until they are fairly big. Then after they morph you can use a dirt tank.

Try doing a "search" of that. Basically it's like using pond water, but you make your own. I put leaves in water and use a little water from another tank. Other people use clean water and change it a lot. That's what I mean.
