Thanks for that Was wondering about feeding the crickets, will sort out something for them now. Allegedly the fruitflies are wingless but the guy at the lfs who keeps newts laughed hollowly when I said that. Wonder how high crickets can jump ... guess I'll soon find out!
Newt 1 isn't as active as newt 2, he hides in the moss a lot while newt 2 climbs up the glass and wood - tank has been newt-proofed though so no chance of escape
Crickets are now in small plastic tank - best I could think of as lid is sealed so no jumping out. THERE'S TWO BIG ONES IN THERE - they don't look cute, they look mean Just have to figure out how to get crickets out of plastic tank and into newt tank Have put some fruitflies in which are running around as didn't chill them. Newt 2 watched them with great interest but has yet to work out he's meant to eat them. I'm not enjoying this live food thing - wish they were vegetarian or ate nice easy newt pellets or something!
