NEW - Newt Tank!

Keep herptiles or something else which isn't a fish?

Postby Indigo Blue Fish » 2007-07-01 19:43

Haaa, yes, I have been keeping this hidden from you all! Well, besides a couple, who had heard of Project F - but now the Newts live in it.

All the pumps, pipes and filtration is hidden away into grooves cut into the back-wall, and the fogger is hidden in the fountain. All the land is built on a platform, so that there's more water than it actually looks like, and there are lots of little hideys and caves built in, as well as the big corkbark hide. I think I'm going to build some more "tunnels" down the side of the fountain/landmass, and create little net bags to lift the newts out with.

Image

Braeburn being Braeburn, as soon as I put them in, he tried to climb out again. See, the reason I'll need the netting is they will bury themselves in tiny gaps, and I won't be able to get them out. In this photo, he was scaling the back wall, and wedged into a slim gap at the top; I had to dismantle all the lid and lighting to get him back out.

Oh cool :D We had 5 of those at work a few months ago, the only ones we've ever had in. What exactly are they called? I think we had them as red faced newts or something. How big will he grow? Sadly, despite our best efforts at keeping them in, 3 of them managed to climp out from the aquarium and make a doomed leap for freedom. We never found where they crawled to :( Hence, we haven't ordered anymore in. We couldn't get a condensation cover to fit the tank they were in, and despite bunging up any little gaps with filter floss... they still got out over the lip of the aquarium. :mellow:
Glad to see you have him in a high security tank IBF ;)

Cynops Orientalis - Fire Bellied Newts :)

The fogger does all sorts of useful things, from as you say, keeping their skins from drying to watering my pothos nicely. Happy plants!

Yes, newts have a remarkable capacity for escapism... Brae will find ANY way out.

Hehe, it is a BIG enclosure - 18" by 18"... I should be getting some more newts to go in it too.

It sort of hopped it (gettit?).
No, things kind of went a little pear-shaped, had to bring the newts home and it was the best place to put them. The toads haven't bred yet this year for some reason, so hadn't got them yet. Perhaps another time.

In the meantime, the newts are livin' it up, having a good wander round and enjoying all their new and nicer facilities. Including live plants, much to Brae's delight, and lots of rocks for Smith to squeeze under. *is chuckling* With the tank so big, the newts VANISH for days at a time.

My fish are still at the ex's, and sadly, Zelda's died so I'm told. I'll be able to move those that are left out when I move to my new house though.

*laughs* Think I need some more newties yet.

And the little chap is being given to me by a forummer o'er on another board I haunt. He's being shipped with some plants bless him!

Heh, my tank's newt proof, or at least, has proven to be so far...

Lol, I did this ages ago. All three have been happily living in there since then! Most of the time, I don't see them for days on end. But the food keeps going, so yeah... Hehe
