Default Plethodon glutinosus and their tank :)

So i finally got myself a trio of slimy salamanders and i have to say im hooked for life. Though ive always been more a european/asian caudates person, i had something for plethodontids....but now that ive seen them in real life....i want them all xDDDDD
They are two juveniles and a (supposedly) male.
Theres also a pic of their tank. I hope its perfectly suitable for them.

It looks fantastic! It does resemble habitats I've found them in.

I must agree with Nathan. It looks just like the habitats I find them in. The sals look nice too.

Very nice setup!!! I'm keeping one P.Cinereus in a viv sort of like yours. Except more plants. But yours is fantastic! I give it 5 stars.

What do you feed these guys and how often? I had some morph from their larvae stage and I got them to eat crickets, but i don't want to go to the pet store every two weeks for crickets.

Thanks

Earthworms are a perfect food for slimy salamanders and they were the staple diet for mine, however, I have fed them mealworms, termites and various beetle larvae that I find in the woods. I fed mine every two or three days.

Jctkc, i dont know what you have, but they cant be Plethodon glutinosus...
P.glutinosus lays eggs on land and theres no larval phase, they are born already as miniature adults.
