That is great to hear that they are all eating well. My newt at this time has no problems swimming around his tank but mainly returns to emersed areas most of the day. He/she eats best on land with peices of earthworm and whiteworm but will eat those same foods and bloodworm underwater. I don't have any weight at this time but maybe soon. There is floating cork bark covered in plants and a small shoreline area made of pond great stuff and hydroponic plants. I will get pics up soon. Thanks for the update.

Hi Logan,

Thanks for the link to your thread - your juvie looks fat and healthy! How old is he, approximately?

We are feeding our little guys chopped earthworms and wax worms. Our larger 2 juvies can now even take whole wax worms, and one of them has accepted 1/2" crickets on occasion.

Thanks Firedreams he/she is pretty chunky. This one was an egg last March so working toward a year old I guess. This one pretty much prefers earthworm chunks and whiteworms. I'm going to try some striped dwarf isopods here soon.

Hi all,

I just wanted to post an update to this thread, as my juvies have been showing some big changes lately and at least 2 appear to have matured into adults (or at least sub-adults).

As I have mentioned before, 2 of my juvies (William and P.B.) became rather larger than the others in the yr following purchase. In the last month, these 2 have drastically changed colour - taking on the sandy colouration of my one adult Chinensis. Both of these juvies have also acquired tail stripes and declared themselves to be male!

The other two juvies (Blackie and Roger) remain smaller in size and black in colouration. Roger remains hydrophobic, but has been eating much more than the others. Blackie also appears to be growing.

I have attached an picture of Blackie and P.B. on their island, demonstrating the difference in colour.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
