Cynops Cyanurus mature females reach approximately 8-10 cm (3-4 in) and males will be slightly smaller than females. The type locality for C. Chenggongensis ( Cynops Cyanurus) is Shuitan in Chenggong County, Yunnan Province at 1940 m (6360 ft) above sea level. C. cyanurus are highly aquatic newts. Adults do well in an aquarium with a water depth of 15-30 cm (6-12 inches). Like most newts, they should always have an island available in case they need to emerge from the water. Do not plan a large area of land, as this space will be wasted for this species. C. cyanurus are believed to be pond-type newts, meaning that they do not normally live in water that has a strong current. Thus filters that create a strong water flow may be detrimental. As a rule of thumb, approximately 3 adult newts can be housed per 40 liters (10 gallons) of tank space. This assumes that the entire tank space is aquatic. C. cyanurus do best when kept at temperatures of 16-18°C (60-65°F) in winter and 21-24°C (70-76°F) in summer. They will usually eat any appropriately-sized foods, including chopped earthworms (Lumbricus spp.), blackworms (Lumbriculus spp.), bloodworms (Chyronimus spp.), Daphnia, and whiteworms (Enchytraeus spp.). Most adults can be adapted to eating suitable pelleted foods. You will receive a juvenile of 2-4 months of age. All newts and salamanders are bred in Austin, Texas by Amphibios Labs. You must select overnight shipping for all animals at checkout.
