Always ensure the water is not chlorinated. Ensure the habitant maintain temperature of between 55 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. You can always monitor the habitant temperature by placing a thermometer inside the glass tank.

The insects you can feed your pet include bloodworms, mealworms and crickets. Feed your salamander once in three days or you can still opt to feed them daily. However ensure there is constant supply of insects. To add nutrition to the pets dies you can give calcium to the salamanders inform of dust.
