    Oh, also another question is, does it matter what gender is put in? If I get another one and it is a male and I already have a male, will it matter? Are males territorial to each other (or if I have a female and get a female). I mean do you have to have a ratio of like 2 females to 1 male, or do the genders not matter? thanks!!

    i dont think the genders matter with newts; providing caves and areas of territorial claim will keep them at bay, though i dont know if newts are all that territorial? not positive though
