Hi,I am very worried here as I have 2 blue tailed fire belly newts and 3 chinese fire belly newts.All 5 of them were in the same tank until I found out that both of my blue tails have a problem.They have been with me for 5 months without problems and this suddenly popped up.1 of them lost 3 hands(1 of the hand with the bone left and the other 2 is just a limb without toes)the 4th leg is fine and also the tail tip is gone(no bone either)and it wasn't like that 1 1/2 day ago(got worst)it seems to have "spread",is it some kind of disease?The other one on the other hand is much better and only lost 1 toe of which the bone is still there.
PLEASE HELP ME ASAP,VERY WORRIED HERE.

regards,
Fiona

I'll get them to a vet asap but the chances of the veterinary knowing what newts are won't be high as newts are very rare around here:( Thanks,will be getting them to a vet today,hope the vet knows what it is.
