I had a Pleurodele newt that was the "runt" of the batch and was the last to morph. He was small and I literally had no place for him; all the other siblings were 2-3 times larger. I thought I would put him into my Red spotted newt setup. Well planted setup and the newts were the same size as the spanish ribbed newt (pleurodele). I also thought, hey this species is very "docile" and "mellow". To my surprise, the Red spotted newts ganged up on the pleurodele immediately and chase him around the tank! I had to keep this little guy in a generic setup until he put on weight. A land setup worked well...he still kept his appetite and "rested".
