Kathryn's 6 Gallon Newt Vivarium
Ok, firstly, before I explode with photos, I want to thank you all for all the help you provided for me while I was planning my newt tank. It is set up now but not complete, I still need to put more plants and rocks in. I'm going to keep it a rather simple set-up, I don't want to overload it with stuff! I have an Elite Mini filter in to do the job too. :D
So here we are....

Here it is with just the backing:

Here it is with gravel:

Here it is with all the rocks chucked in, it looks rather different now:

And water:

Here's some pics of the newts:

Enjoy! There will be more piccies to come soon hopefully! :D

Thanks. I couldn't quite call them cute, but they're interesting wee creatures. :D

Very nice tank and very cool newts.

How are you heating or at least maintaining the temp?

Kathryn 01-06-2007 06:02 AM

I just keep a very close eye on the temperature. They like cooler water, so a heater would not be of much use. :D
