Default Re: Hello chinese fire belly newt buddies :)

Hi, welcome to the site. :)
Newly purchased petstore firebellies are normally extremely stressed after being captured and exported from China, so the best thing to do is make sure they have the correct environment and let them settle in for a while.
If they recover, they should eat the earthworms and mosquito larvae, but might never recognise the pellets as food.
Here are some helpful links.
