Post Fire belly newt food

I am getting some fire belly newts soon(about 3) and i want to get a food supply that will be able to replenish itself like brine shrimp or something. i need to do this since where i live is kinda out in the boonies and there is not many places to buy food and i don't wanna have to dig for earth worms

The two best staple diets for Firebellies are Earthworms or, if they'll eat them, high quality amphibian pellets. If you can't provide either of those things you should perhaps consider a different pet.

You could set up an earth worm compost, then you don't have to dig that much. They don't multiply fast, though. Getting newts to eat pellets can be easy or a nightmare... :) but those two really are the best choices for newts as Chinadog said.

I fully agree since some individuals of a same species can eat them and other don't. If an individual don't eat them, it will become weak.
