this is Briggs, so far not having any problems with him other than he's abit shy





here is louis, this is the one im having trouble getting to eat.


i've tried feeding him live bloodworms all sizes, he ate one and bought it back up straight away, im now trying him on live daphnia. in their tank i have a large rock, which he uses as his 'house', it has a pool of water under it so ive poured them into there. hope he'll eat them

how long can newts survive without eating?

could try chopped earthworms, chopped waxworms, daphnia are also a good choice, might just be the stress of a new home one of mine didnt eat for about 2 weeks when i got them.

they can survive a while without eating but with them being young i hope they would be eating by 2 or 3 weeks max

btw your piccys arent coming up but im on the work computer so i could just be that
