Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.

Default Triturus marmoratus, aquatic setup

I have a pair of t. marmoratus juveniles, and I'm having a hard time to make one of them eat.
Suddenlly, two weeks ago, one of them stopped eating.
I'm keeping them at a terrestrial simple setup with wet paper towel, a small water dish and some cork bark hide places.
Do you know if there is any harm in keeping them at a fully aquatic setup with a shallow water part?
Because other triturus species such as cristatus and karelini usually are more eager to feed when aquatic...
They are about 6-7 cm ( 2.5 in)

The one that is not eating is already getting thinner, I'm worried about it
