Default Looking for newt eggs/babies

I'm just trying to find whatever i can at this point I would rather not buy one already grown from a pet store not knowing where it came from or if it was caught in the wild. I kind of want to raise one from birth so that I can fully watch it grown and flourish.

I have an aquarium already setup its very nice and everything is perfect for a baby :P

Hi Micky, do you have any particular requirements or preferences regarding the species? Many newts go through a terrestrial phase after metamorphosis - typically for 1-2 years - are you willing to cope with that, or does it need to be a species that remains aquatic throughout its childhood? What winter/summer water temperatures do you expect in the tank?

I have the tank setup for a Semi-aquatic but mostly aquatic area for it to move around in. I was thinking about FireBellied newt because it seems they are the easiest to care for and stay in the pretty much same enviroment.
