Rep: Newtothis33 is an unknown quantity at this point
Question Long toed salamander help

Hi, I live In Washington state and Iím new to amphibians and seeking some knowledge. I found a baby salamander in my koi pond while cleaning it. It was in larvae stage gills and all, I put It in a small cricket tank but I read Somewhere they need at least 20 gallons so I bought a 29 gallon tank. When I put it in the new tank it had a lot of water (since I wasnt Sure if it was aquatic) then a couple days later itís gills were gone! Freaking out, not wanting it to die I did Massive research and found out it went into metamorphosis and it was actually a long toed salamander. Iím in the process of completely rearranging the terrarium to fit the long toed salamander lifestyle (moss, coconut husk substrate, wood, rocks and a water area) . My girlfriend wants to name it but I have no idea how to determine sex? Can anyone help? And possible tips for best care for this little guy/girl?
