I am interested is setting up a terrarium for 4 slimy salamanders. The tank is a standard 30 gallon long 36 inch tank.
My questions are is it safe to house slimys together or could one possibly eat another?
Would wet paper towels be safer than soil in order to prevent fungus?
Ideal temps for them?
I have two huge fire salamanders over 8 yrs. They are housed in a 30 gallon tank with moist white no chemical/no perfume paper towels and lots hide areas such as hollow driftwood,clay pots,etc. I would like to house the slimies same way if possible.

Thanks.
Pan

Isn't 'Slimy Salamander' a bit redundant?Click the image to open in full size.
