Three Rana sp. and two juv. Firebelly newts

here's a pic of the Rana.sp. with luminous
green vertebral stripe.

It's a beautiful vivarium. When you say "juv firebelly newts" do you mean "Rana dinner"? Even if they don't become Rana dinner, I suspect the newts will disappear into the moss and crevices and it will be hard to know if they are eating or even still in there. Although I love the setup, I probably wouldn't put small newts into it. What are you using as food?

I am using frozen blood worms and freshly molted
mealworms.

Always seen them feasting together on the frozen
blood worms. No problem of attacking each other...but I am considering your advise of just
keeping one species inside.


innocent looking

The fact the newt is grey is a sign that it's being kept too warm.

OMG!! Thats a gorgeous setup!! Its paradise to me!!! That stream is soooooooooooooo enchanting!Man, I wish I could see it upclose. Hope all your animals appreciate it. Anything living in the water, it doesnt look like it could sustain any vertebrates.

I think it's due to the reflection from the lighting when I took the pic...thats why it looks greyish.

Thanks for all your comments.

I need some advise here though...which amphibian
is more suitable for my setup?

I am thinking of taking out the C.orientalis
to place them in a more aquatic setup.

Is my tank suitable to keep T.shangjing?

If you modify it slightly it should be okay. shanjing need ventilation or they can develop skin problems, so you'll need to have a screen lid. Also, it looks a little too wet for shanjing. If you can keep the majority of it on the drier side then I would say go for it.

    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
