Hey everyone! Nick here!! Just had my first spawn of these little newts a few months back. Out of the 20 or so, I noticed an odd colored one. I've been keeping an eye on it throughout the whole process. Should be getting ready to leave the water any week now! Has anyone else ever popped one of these put in their newts? Thanks everyone!

These usually turn out to be hypomelanistic or leucistic (less likely). They're often infertile.

Update! Getting big and still no signs of morphing, all siblings have left the water for at least a month already. This one may end up paedamorphic, who knows.
