Just a little update: everything is growing well except for the wisteria, which is maybe a blessing because I kind of overloaded this thing with plants.

Amphibians are herps.

Look into captive bred newts, if you're still interested. Spanish ribbed newts will be CB and they make great pets.

Let's see... I feed my newts a mix of live, chopped earthworms, and frozen bloodworm cubes. They really will eat anything that 'smells' like food, though. Or anything that moves.

In a 55 gallon,...

Thanks for the comments!

AquaAurora: I got the wood off of the banks of the river near our house. It had to be cleaned and soaked for a while to get the swamp smell mostly off of it.

55 gallon riparium for newts

Fish suggestions for a 20 high

I've got a 20 gallon (high) currently inhabited by one female betta and 5 white clouds. They have no issues getting along. My husband would like to add something 'more interesting'. Anyone...

Long overdue update on this tank. It's gotten quite a bit more overgrown since the last pictures. Still very low tech - I just trim it every few months.

I know the tads eat algae, but they won't touch the hair algae. My dad does feed them pretty often - boiled greens.

The lilies are hardy because they survive the winters. The only...

These guys should be very easy to breed. Just by chance, you actually seem to have one of the things that helps a lot: a 'dance floor'. This species really likes to have a small area clear of plants...

Some Petsmarts don't carry them. Our local one does, though. I'm sure it's just up to the individual store manager.

I don't think this tank could have enough water depth for a fully aquatic newt like a fire belly or Eastern. Marbled salamanders you would probably never see because they are so shy.
