Rep: srfr72 has shown reliable knowledge
Default advice needed

Approximately when will a juvenile terrestrial Chinese fire belly newt go aquatic? I've had one that is about 2 inches and is showing no signs of interest in water. I've had it since December.

Default Re: advice needed

Around a full year is to be expected. This does defer between individuals. Slow introduction to water and caution is necessary when you first begin. Its up to your newt to tell you when it is ready, if you offer swallow water and it avoids the water then it is not ready. If it enters the water and eagerly eats in the water, slowly (over the course of several weeks) raise the water level.
