Rep: Maxinger is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Tylototriton verrucosus changed behavior lately

Hi,
I have a maybe very trivial or unnecessary question:
I'm keeping a group of 1 year old tylos in a well established 200l tank and had no issues so far. For the most part of the last year, all 4 were very active, always begging for food and really really good eaters. However, in the last 2-3 months their behavior changed pretty drastically. They aren't as active and eat a lot less, sometimes nothing at all. I went from feeding them every 2-3 days to now only once a week. They also sit in dry places more often than they used to.
Is that a normal behavior for those animals during the winter (temperatures went down from ~24C to ~17C)? I know that they are supposed to be a little less active but I never experienced such a massive change before.
I'm pretty sure I'm overreacting, it would just be great to get someone elses opinion on that...

Thanks in advance!

Mine are less active and hungry when it's cold.
