it worried me too. not just for other fish. i could not afford anything in the house, that's too dangerous. because my daughter is disabled, and gets into anything. (she is the reason i have any tanks). I've seen it a number of times myself.Ok; I thought I read it somewhere about poisoning other fish. I knew about the human impact.
Ignore what I said then
sorry I just noticed your reply. I also "think" male but I'm not too sure. I will check back come breeding season. Like I said I'm not fussed I'd just like to associate it with a gender so I don't feel guilty calling it a him or a her when it's not. (I do however call both of my female budgies boys )need to see, around breeding time. Male, i think.If your newt has bumps I'd guess that is is male. As boboboy said he should be old enough to tell now.
Boboboy in your opinion is this newt male? <a href="http/www.flickr.com/photos/dipsydoodlenoodle/3945459808/" target="_blank">http/www.flickr.com/photos/dipsydoodlenoodle/3945459808/</a> It has lumps at the base of the tail but the tail isn't shaped like a males is (it's not a very good photo of the tail... <a href="http/www.flickr.com/photos/dipsydoodlenoodle/3944681173/)" target="_blank">http/www.flickr.com/photos/dipsydoodlenoodle/3944681173/)</a>
