• For Sale/Give-Away/Trade Ads for all countries

    Caudata.org was founded to encourage and help people breed newts and salamanders in captivity. As a result we feel very strongly about the sale of wild-caught animals and we do not allow this practice. All for sale advertisements must be for captive bred animals. Animals that are wild-caught but are "long-term" captives can be given away. We may allow long-term captive animals to be traded, strictly at the moderators' discretion (if you have a track record/we know of you and your practices, we are more likely to approve such an advertisement).

    Commercial sellers will only be allowed to advertise on Caudata.org if they sell captive bred animals only and we also ask that you don't link your website (or any other commercial website) unless you are a captive-bred only establishment. As a commercial seller, if you do not think you meet the criteria but are unsure, please contact us.

    For everyone, private or commercial, the general criteria for approving ads are as follows:

    For Sale or Trade (amphibians):

    - Captive Bred (CB) only (must say so).
    - Must state quantity of animals available.
    - Must state age or source of animals (did you breed them or buy them?).
    - Must state price.
    - No protected species unless you can provide permits or legal papers where such things apply.
    - Must be for animals currently available (not orders for future animals).


    Free to good home:

    - Captive Bred (CB) or Long-Term Captive (LTC).
    - A history of the animals would be helpful.
    - No protected species unless you can provide permits or legal papers where such things apply.


    For Sale or trade (supplies, feeders, etc.):

    - Anything goes, within reason.


    Ads are often placed without the complete info above. This will delay the approval of your ad by the moderators, or it could result in it being removed completely.

    Users who have not complied with our forum rules (linked at the bottom of every page) will not have their ads approved. We pay special attention to whether or not you have filled the real name field and whether your country flag is listed in your profile. Also, if you have any unresolved warning or infraction, your ad will not be approved.

    Thanks to Abrahm and Jennewt for writing most of this.

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?

    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)

    My three inch axolotl was having trouble pooping up to a few days ago. I wasn't feeding her as often because I was scared I would just add to her constipation. I fridged her until she pooped (twice), and then began to feed her around 6 bloodworms every other day. she's been pooping everyday now, but she's at that age where you can see through her stomach and I always see poop ready to come out but has not yet passed. I don't think she's constipated anymore, but I'm not sure and i don't want to over or underfeed her... any advice?

    @Lilith, fridging is not required for fungus treatment. Read my thread on treatment.

    Its probably not pooping because its hardly beign fed, it pooped in the fridge because the lower temp caused it to purge itself. If it stays constipated you can pm me

    Hi guys. Quick question. I have newly morphed eastern newt efts. They lost their gills but they still prefer the water. I have coconut fiber, moss, hidey holes and some food in the temporary habitat for them (waiting for the other newts to morph as well). But they still run back to the water. Is it the wrong substrate? Do they prefer something other than coconut fiber? I've been doing everything else properly (According to my research) but just wondering why they haven't ventured up. Have any ideas?
