Hynobiid Salamanders (Hynobiidae) This group of Far Eastern salamanders are becoming increasingly popular in captivity, and thanks to the captive breeding efforts of one European hobbyist in particular (you know who I mean), they are becoming easier and easier to acquire.

Default Keeping Hynobius from Taiwan?

Hello Folks,
i am new to Hynobius species.
May i ask if anyone keeps Hynobius from Taiwan?
Specifically Hynobius glacialis and Hynobius sonani
Are the captive requirements similar to Hynobius dunni below?
may i also ask if Hynobius species are aggressive species? can they be keep in small group of 1M 2F in a 10 gallon tank with a Large floating dock 50% land area surface? also a small air bubble box filter installed for filtration and aeration.
i plan to house them in my wine fridge at temperature about 14C-21C. is this ok for long term housing?

Thanks and cheers!
