Sorry about all of these question boards, I need help with the salamanders and hamsters :D And I knew I could come here for the answers... so, I have this cage with 8 salamnders in it right now, but what do you think should me the maximum numbers of salamnders in here? And should they be small ones (Fire Bellies) or the big ones (like Tank... the yellow spotted).

How many gallons is the tank?

Well I found this information on a site, maybe it will help you:

I have found that an all-glass aquarium is quite appropriate as this species does not especially object to the 'openness' of glass. A 36-inch aquarium will quite comfortably house up to four specimens with a 3:1 or 2:2 male to female ratio being preferred where breeding is to be attempted. This must have a secure lid as, like most caudates, mandarin salamanders can escape out of the smallest gaps. Adequate ventilation is also essential.

It's 25 gallons... (I think :p, I'm pretty sure).
