The water may have done something--what type of water did you use? Also, at what temperature did you keep them? As for getting an amphibian or emp, let's start with what you're looking for in a pet.

i am looking for something in a tank, something interesting. the emp will be fine as i have a clearseal tank, just need substrate heat mat etc, amphibians not so much i guess, just enquiring.
the water was tap water, treated with aquarium tap safe, left to stand to let the clhorine go, after the chloramine (sp?) went. the nitrite/nitrate/ammonia was 0 or as close as it's going to get.

Most scorpions are lot easier too keep happy than amphibians I've found. I'm having a nightmare at the moment keeping my salamanders cool enough.

Most salamanders have to be kept cool. With the recent hot weather and the beardies, scorps and T's heating it's been getting way to warm in their enclosure. I've been doing silly things like keeping water in the fridge to mist and fill their water bowl with Laughing

Can't go wrong with an Emp.

If you're looking for an amphibian i'd recommend a fire belly toad. They look pretty cool and are really easy to keep. I have two that i've had for way over a year now. I also have a fire belly newt, a red spotted and two spanish ribbed newts. All pretty easy to keep/handle.
