I still have yet to see either of them eat, but the larger one is plumper and has more energy as I picked him up for this picture today. I'll try putting bent tail into a little 2.5 gal with some of the live food I have in the larger tank so I can monitor him. I'll also put in some chopped earthworms to see if he gets at them. They are usually on different side of the tank when I see them so I'm not too sure they are competing for food. But hopefully this will help.

The bigger one could be forcing the smaller one to an area where there aren't to many food items

Bent tail is starting to plump up since I put him in his own setup. :)

BTW, what does Bent Tail's set-up look like?

It is pretty bare. Just soil full of springtails isopods and white worms and a hide for him.

Also, how did Bent Tail bend his tail?

It was bent when he arrived to me. You can barely even see it now though since it rounded out.

Hey, I have an idea for a name for him: Nameless! Seriously, kind of fits him for some reason but I don't know why...

Hi,

Sorry this is a bit late, but I'm pretty sure what you've got are marbled salamanders (Ambystoma opacum). I'm currently raising a ton of marbleds and they look a lot like yours.
