I have Chinese fire-bellies, and I feed them frozen blood worms mostly, they don't really go for the pellets.

The diet that is nutritionally best and easiest to obtain is usually earthworms and bloodworms. See:

(Also you may want to read the FAQ.)

<font color="ff6000">Bruce, which are you referring when saying: chinese red bellied newts? Cynops pyrrhogaster or orientalis? How about feeding earthworms, chopped nightcrawlers, glass shrimp, waxworms, bloodworms.</font>

Should be Orientalis, but again, most petstores owners are dishonest imbeciles. Bruce, perhaps u can tell us the size of ur newts. I'll go with the jennewt diet.
