As much as I would love to seth, I cannot take pictures. I am trying to disturb them as little as possible. The only times I have gone near their tank is to feed them and moisten the soil. Best of luck to you too Neil :D

Great looking specimens!
Those individuals actually are T. yangi, not T. kweichowensis. They are more terrestrial than T. kweichowensis, so I would suggest increase the land portion and offer more live plants and hiding spots. I have 5 T. yangi and I keep them in terrestrial setting with only a water bowl, which they seldomly use.
Here are a pict of my tank that took recently.

The tank was made one year ago, and mosses and plants were growing naturally since then. I moist the tank twice a day and feed the newts once every 3 days with crickets and worms.

That's true~lol They only come out from hiding spots at night. But that reflects most of their natural behaviors.

When I made the thread they were still called tylototriton cf. kweichowensis. I began calling them yangi as soon as I heard them name :) I have created a new thread with the proper name now so it is more accurate.

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
