Default Best temperatues Ribbed newts

I have an unheated basement that runs between 50 and 60F. Is this warm enough to raise eggs or larvae? I am just deciding where to set up the big tanks.

Default Re: Best temperatues Ribbed newts

In the wild breeding season is from November to January so the eggs and larvae sometimes have to cope with even lower temperatures. 60F should be nearly perfect for development, even though many breeders raise their eggs around 70F (maybe for faster hatching?).

Best regards,
