I find that by feeding them 3-4 small meals a day of super high quality food works just fine. I feed NLS GROW to my breeders to condition them when I don't feel like finding live and frozen foods. Works just fine.

I see you have a red/violet butterfly big ear and a MG big ear. Are you planning to cross them?

They look good on the video! I think you should end up with fairly nice fry out of that pair. I'd love to see more MG big ears with the butterfly band. Salamanders are so common. I have a giant one.
If you decide to breed her again you should try a blue. Even one with red wash would work because she is carrying nr.

Here's mine:
