New Newts

Thanks to a local chap, I am now the proud owner of a pair of bouncing juvenile Spanish ribbed newts, which are happily settling in their new heavily-planted 10 gallon tank. Hopefully I will have some pics soon, but here are some pics (not mine, obviously) to tide you over:

What they look like now (at about 6" each):

...and what they should look like when fully mature:

The newts share their tank with 3 ruby nerite snails:

Yep, first link fixed and it was worth it. Where'd you squeeze this tank into?

I actually moved a few things....the Asian tiger crayfish ( http://www.crayfishshop.com/images/a...er-lobster.jpg ) and his friends, the three 3" clown loaches and a school of 4 big green tiger barbs, got to go live in another tank that was pretty much just plants....they were due to be transferred to a larger tank anyways.
