Cynops cyanurus (Blue Tailed Newts) Mating

Here is a brief video of my Blue Tailed Newts courting/mating. If they laid eggs, then chances are the eggs were eaten by their tank mates consisting of at least 1/2 dozen ghost shrimp, a few other blue tailed newts, 2 Paradise Fish and several Green Aeneus Catfish. If they are still in mating mode, when I get home after my trip for the NRA Instructor class that I am taking next week, then I'll have to segregate them in their own tank and see if the female lays eggs. If so, I imagine I'll have a regular nursery on my hands in no time with the Corn Snake eggs and Hermann's Tortoise eggs I already have in the incubator.

All the best,
Glenn B
