Red face Tank sizes for larvae and juvenile Japanese fire belly newts (Cynops pyrrhogaster)

Hey guys i'm hoping to breed my newts in the future and was wanting to set up a tank or two in advance so I can grow all the plants and be prepared etc..

What is the gallons per newt ratio for larvae approaching metamorphosis and terrestrial juveniles? Or just a rough size guide?

Can anyone show me their set ups?

This is how I raised my first pyrrhogaster babies. I don't know if its the best way, but it seemed to work quite well.

Raising C. pyrrhogaster fully aquatic.
