Question Baby newt care

Hello everyone, I found this baby newt which hatched in my micro terrarium (didn't even notice it !) filled with water from my pond. I also found some moskito larvae to feed him. The problem is that I don't know if it is good for him as food, and if I need to cut little bits of larvae or just but the whole larvae and he will eat it. I put some pictures of my newt and the larvae.

The food items have to be small enough for him to eat , see what size it can manage. Does your pond have daphnia ? Thats a good aquatic food. What species is it ? Im assuming it survived on microrganisms in the water you di d water changes with, is this correct ?

My pond has cyclop copepods, is that ok ? I think he fed on those since there were a lot in my terrarium. I think it is a Lissotriton helveticus, and when I saw him I put him in tap water that I change every 2-3 days.

If your ponds fish free i would use pond water and any small bugs in it, once its a bit bigger small chopped eartworm , bloodworm , fruit flies and fruitfly maggots aswell when it goes terrestrial.

As long as bugs are in the water it can feed, add pond weed aswell , it will provide cover and have additional bugs.
