In the 2nd photo you can see an egg in the top right corner.

Newts love frog tadpoles, as I found out!

Hi Andreas, this is in a small fish tank. I normally use it for my Heliamphora and Drosera, but they had to move out to make room for the newts. I've released the newts now as they have laid plenty of eggs for me.

The bladderwort is U. australis. I put some into the tank because it grows naturally where these newts came from. I've released the newts and kept the bladderwort ;)
