Default Why Are My Marbled Newts Not Breeding


I have a group of 10 adult marbled newts, 6 males and 4 females, the females are swollen with eggs and the males are all fully crested, but I have not seen them show any signs of mating rituals and the females have not laid a single egg! My alpine newts are constantly courting and laying eggs every day. Is this normal or is it the fact that i have them kep outside (Temp is in region of 9 degrees centigrade). therefore will warmer weather set them off??? Or is this species sometimes difficult to breed? Is there a particular water PH? weed, etc they require?
