Nice looking newt and tank! It looks like the newt could climb out, though. You need to make sure there is either a good lid or a wide rim around the edges. You could also fill the tank more - the more water the better. Caudata Culture Articles - Preventing Escape
I like your tank setup. I noticed that a few others mentioned that your newts could escape, that's very true. My newt escaped 5 times until I purchased another tank that has a rid. Good Luck w/your newts.
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
