:okay thanks for the id confirm. I will ask them again.
:how do you keep your kwangtungs? set up?
:are they another "semi - terrestrial" or are they pretty aquaticwere your captive bred?

Right now, as they are young, they tend to be solely aquatic. They will bask every once in a while. They are CB. I keep them in a shallow water setup with a little land area to climb around on. They are big fish eaters.

If anyone has a good source of information on this species, I'd love to know about it. Seems info for them is few and far between. I've found one or two pieces of info about them here and there, but for the most part, it's hardly enough to go on.
