Thanks so much for all of the advice! I really appreciate it! They're looking better already. Still need to get them to eat something (I only have newt pellets and a bunch of betta food), so I'll be going out later to get some frozen brine shrimp... I'm sure the fishies will like it as much as they will!

They're a lot of fun to watch... can't handle them nearly as much as you would a reptile though. The boyfriend met them tonight. He agrees that he'd love to have them but we have WAY too many tanks in this house!!! lol

Just make sure to. Give them shrimp in moderation because of the salt content I had a fbn wen I was a kid and it died from too much salty shrimp because sum dumb petshop employee told my mom it'd b fine just 2 feed it frozen bs as its everyday meal :(

This is why I flat out don't speak to the pet store associates. What's a good everyday diet?

I was interested in getting one and i read that they need at LEAST 10gals for at least 2 newts. Their diet i didnt read about so i cant help ya there, but yea i also read that they need the water filled all the way at the top with some land.. Idk it seemed pretty complicated so im waiting it out, probably just get a lizard instead!

I keep reading contradicting stuff too. Will be going out to get them a larger critter keeper, I just can't fit another 10 gallon in my house! Hopefully their new owner (whoever that might be) can provide for them more than I can.

Bought them some "reptile sticks" as a staple for the time being... The package said "perfect for amphibians" so I'm having trouble figuring out why they're called REPTILE sticks. meh. They have similar ingredients to the pellets, and the newts like chasing them around. Lazily.
Made a few mods to the tank... Had some extra gravel from the 10 gallon so I used the rest to give them a little beach of sorts... Layered it with large rocks so they wouldn't be tempted to nibble on the gravel. Looks awesome. :)
