Default Keeping Aneides lugubris

Hello, I have just joined this forum. I keep Aneides lugubris and would like to know some tips. I also keep Batrachoseps attenuatus. Some tips for breeding would be great. I'm considering breeding as soon as I get a female. I want to know some of the requirements of this salamander. I have checked on this forum previously and found some good advice. I want to hear from some experts (russ)!

Lugubris are pretty straight forward. I keep them on medium landscaping bark with an upside down clay pot bottom and a larger slab of bark for cover. I only moisten one side of the container and leave a drier side. Aneides are prone to rashed if they are kept on perpetually wet substrate. I keed them appriately sized crickets, dusting them on a week. Temps are best if kept below 70F, dropping into the 50s in the winter.

I'm currently taking a break working with them pending a move. I had some temp issues this last summer and farmed or sold most of my animals. I'm currently only keeping my albino male lug and his mate. Hopefully my next house will have a basement!
