Also, make sure to keep their water clean in addition to feeding greens like
algae. I have been raising alot of salamander larvae this spring by keeping
them in shoe boxes in the garage. they are carnivores though, and need
additions of mosquito larvae and daphnia every few days. I just dump off
some of the water and add some fresh aged water from the fish ponds. Aged
water is important as well for amphibians. They are very senstive to
chemicals in city water, and also salts. Rain water with a few oak leaves
to add a nice tea color is beneficial.
