Default Re: Help Beginner prepare before getting Fire Bellied Newts.

It's nice to see somebody put in the leg work to find captive bred newts, you should end up with happy healthy stock if you go down that route.
I can understand the appeal of plaudarium style set ups, they can look beautiful and I wouldn't say they can't work for newts, they can, but only if there's enough water in there. Highly aquatic species like Chinese firebellies need to have at least 10 gallons of water in there to keep the temperature and water quality stable enough.
