That's what I was thinking. And yes, that helps a lot! Trying to find something slanted I can use for them to get on land, but I'll post a picture of my makeshift set-up. It's only 2.5 gallons, but that's all I've got for the time being. I have an empty 10 gallon but I'm in the process of setting that up for the sorority.
One of the newts really is not a fan of going into the water right now. I'm wondering if that's due to an illness? The water is dechlorinated and at room temperature, and the other newt is having a heck of a time exploring, but the former is just sitting on top of the island. looking around and making noises, but really does not want to be in the water.
