Default Ribbed newt diet question?

Hello all,
I was wondering how varied the diet of ribbed newts should be and if it affects their health and color in anyway? Thanks,
-Gator

I use various sorts of food ithems like earthworms, frozen insectlarvaes, axlotl pellets. They really feed on anything so they are easy to keep on a varied diet.

I feed mine only carnivore pellets. They are in a heavily planted tank and have occasional access to snails/eggs and fish fry. They have been happy and healthy for three years on this diet. I used to over think it and fed a variety but have noticed no adverse effects from their limited diet. I feed them a couple times a week or so.
