I like to do a small set up for juvenile fire salamanders. I use pea gravel covered with pressed down cocofiber as a substrate. I seed the substrate with dwarf isopods and some springtails. I add some dried maple or oak leaves, a small water dish, and some cork bark hides. I feed them chopped earthworms, whiteworms, fruit flies, and small crickets.

A similar setup but larger can be used for adult fire salamanders. I feed my adults large earthworms and crickets.

Here is a picture of the type of setup I like. It has green marbled newts in it and could use a few more leaves and hides. I use a similar setup for all small terrestrial salamanders.
