Get java moss....and lots of it.

I have some fish tanks with this stuff. And in 10 gallon tank I put down large clumps of it and kept it damp. Doesn’t have to be soaking wet. On top of that I placed leaves, rocks, and bark. Worked for me.

I like to leave them in water, place java moss in a plastic container with about 2 inches of water. Force them to stay aquatic,doing now with 5 newts that just morphed and i did it with the parents. I offered mom and dad no land and never have. i had mom and dad shipped to me when they were eggs.

I got 4 right now that just don't like water whatsoever. They are still young so maybe I can get them to start going aquatic, but on the bright side it's easier to feed them live food on land. Just leaving isopod/springtail culture with them to hunt and forage.

I had them aquatic for a little bit but any kind of food in the water they simply couldn't catch or didn't want.
