Title My Eastern Newts Arrived
My Eastern Newts Arrived Today

I received my newts today and have been busy watching them, the first thing I did was set them on the dry land plank a few times to see if they were terrestrial, but to my surprise!, every time I set them on it they dove straight back into the water, the water temperature was at 75 at the time of the test.

I also had Betta fish flake food floating on the surface which they did not touch at first, but once it sank to the bottom they began feeding heavily on it, so far so good, the filter is adjusted to a very slow flow, the tank is a 10 gallon, all 3 are about 3 inches long each 2 of them seam to be a much darker brown color than the one very light tan one, perhaps as they begin to grow I will be able to tell more about them, thats all for now but more to come later.
