I received an email from someone who wanted to know how to care for fire-bellied newts so I decided to share a couple care sheets I found with you.
I personally do not have my aquarium set up the way explained in the care sheets. My aquarium is described in my blog: How we like our tank set up
My particular newts like to eat crickets, waxworms and nightcrawlers. I have to cut the worms into a reasonable size for the newts to swallow or they will ignore the food. I love to dangle the worm at the end of a toothpick and watch the newts go after it.
But, I imagine the people writing the following care sheets have more experience than myself so you may want to set up your aquarium like they describe.
