I have a fire salamander which is currently doing fine, but I would like to get another pet to live with him (maybe a marbled salamander). Any suggestion ?

Welcome to the forum! I would recommend you do a search on "species mixing" or some variant of that. It's generally not a good idea to mix species like that, and you can learn all about why by searching around.

Hi
Unlike fish (well actually maybe like some) and as otterwoman said, amphibians can't really be kept in a communal tank or tank with other species, even if they originate from the same places. This is because most have toxins and some may be aggressive towards each other.
If you want another salamander, another fire salamander would be best.
