I usually keep Eastern Newts and various terrestrial Floridian salamanders such as slimies and two-lines. The newts are aquatic, but have a terrestrial eft stage that just needs a damp environment. The actual salamanders I have kept use a fully terrestrial damp environment as well, not water except after heavy rains causing flooding (in the wild). To be on the safe side you could take a deli container lid and fill it with water. It gives a slight minor depth of water at ground level so that the small salamanders can get in and out without an issue. I would think that the damp paper towels, if kept so, should be enough. I have not kept European fire salamanders before though so I would go with the dish to be on the safe side as I do not know much about their natural history. Are the metamorphosed babies on land areas, bog areas, or still at the lake? This can tell you more about the actual requirements. Again, good luck .
