    This is my juvenile tiger salamander and his/her setup its a 5 gallon tank with moss at the bottom. i spray it daily and i change and wash out the water dish every other day. Right now it its a couple crickets a week. I bought him for 20$ is that a good price? He was also labeled as a marbled salamander though.:)

    5 gallons?! A tiger salamander needs at least twenty gallons of space! Crickets for a juvenile should be fed every day too.

    I'm not sure about the price, but I agree with Frogsrule. That salamander needs a bigger tank, even as a juvenile. Just bite the bullet and buy an adult-sized tank right now so you're not buying a medium-sized tank, then an adult one a year down the road anyway.

    ill probably just get a nice big tub at walmart or something. also how fast do you think he will grow. and about the feeding i used to not keep crickets and just feed them all to everything when i got them but now i do some ill bump up hisfeeding. tell ya what though its a way better place then the pet store i got him from the guy had him in with like 7 hermit crabs

    Don't put him in a tub. A tank will be better to keep his humidity along with his other care requirements...

    Also, shouldn't you have researched this stuff before you purchased the animal?

    A big square rectangle is a big square rectangle. It doesn't matter if its glass or plastic. Tubs are fine and have the advantage of having a lid that will close up the humidity.

    I agree, if you do decide to get a tank, the lid will most likely be screen. Just cover it with foil. (Except where the light fixture goes) This will help with keeping in humidity.
