Default New Fire Belly Newts!

Hello everybody! I'm new to owning newts and I just bought two fire bellies. I'm very VERY nervous I'm not sure if these marks on my fire belly are a fungus starting, skin shedding, or just something else. I just bought them yesterday. Click the image to open in full size.

Please let me know if the picture worked, thank you!

Hi! I'm not seeing a picture, other than where it's supposed to be. Could be my connection? Let's see what others say.
Good luck!

Update: The fire belly with the white spots is not growing fuzz or anything. He has been shedding a lot and is only down to a few white spots on his tail so I'm guessing he's just shedding. Is that normal for him to do in a new tank? He stays underwater most of the time. The other one mostly stays on the land.

It would be best if you could post a picture or two so we can see what kind of newts you have, there are several species that are sometimes called fire bellies. I really hope it's not more newts from the petstore. What happened to the sick paddletail from your last thread?
