K I got his tank setup the water is from the aquarium he was in, does it look good? I have driftwood and river stones for him to hide and climb on, he has a lot of land space as well, the water is about 2-3 inches deep is that deep enough?

Well, it has been in captivity less than 24 hours. It is likely still adjusting to the radical change in conditions.

Keep in mind that it will likely prefer food small enough to eat easily, and certainly is accustomed to moving prey. Also make sure the temps are appropriate (care sheet says 15c - 22c/59F - 71F), since heat stressed amphibians tend not to feed.

That care sheet also says that they should be kept in moving water. I don't know if that would affect feeding behavior, but it might.

Yes the temp is between 60-70 your right i think its just because its getting introduced to the cage, the earwigs were moving and wiggling but the worms were motionless, i will try again tomorrow.

The food items are probably too big. At this stage they're eating macroinvertebrates like tiny mayflies, stoneflies, and chironomids. I would try bloodworms personally. Sometimes fish stores will sell live bloodworms for guppies and such.

I gave him a baby earthworm just now and he ate it!! Im so relieved, he ate it whole and then went back to hiding in the rocks his temp is staying at about 70 but goes down to 68-69 at night.

His temperature is staying at 70F how can i lower that temp???

The practical way, really, is to lower the temp of the room. Some folks keep temperate amphibians in the basement, where it is cooler. Temperature control can be the limiting factor for keeping temperate amphibians in captivity.

There are various chillers available, but they are expensive and can't really be plumbed simply into a small tank. Certainly a comprehensive search could offer options for serious DIYers or those with deep pockets.
