Question Good setup for Dusky Salamander?

Hello everyone! My friend and I rescued a very young dusky salamander by getting swept up in the current of a stream. He was barely out of the egg and we watched two of his siblings get lost in the creek. I've decided to keep him, at least until he gets big enough to live on his own. What do you think is a good setup for him for the time being?

Default Re: Good setup for Dusky Salamander?

I keep dusky larva in a small 2.5 gallon setup with gently flowing 60F water until they morph. They do not need any substrate and I feed them chopped earthworms and mosquito larva. Here is a more detailed care sheet for a species in the same genus with the same care requirements that you might find useful: Caudata Culture Species Entry - Desmognathus - Blackbelly and Shovelnose

If you like what I say, punch that button with the white scale on it!
