Hi Stefan!

I want to congratulate you for breeding these nice salamanders, too! I'm proud to know a friend who was able to breed them as fast as you did! If I will have some more space in the next time, I would really love to take some.

Absolutely stunning! Good luck on the successful upbringing of the larva. Looks like quite the handful.

sorry I didn't notice the link.
How did you keep them in order to breed? (temps, housing, ecc.)
Cheers

and looks like you are going to be busy for a while http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/wink.gif

With 50 larvae it starts getting hard work, kieron but I`m looking forward to see them grow and finally metamorphose. For me gigliolii is still one of the prettiest salamandras I have ever seen! ;) :D

Philip: My gigliolii female is 7,3 inches long (18,5 cm)
Christian: My tanks look very simple. For larvipar salamanders i have foam with a huge layer moss on it and bark-pieces for hiding.

This is fantastic. I want a Fire Salamander but can't because of my parents.

Hi Stefan,
CAn you post a pic of your setup. I just purchased some fire Salamanders that I'm going to be breeding and I would like to have an idea of how to setup the area where the female will be laying her eggs.

Hello Steve,

Salamandra salamandra do not lay eggs as other salamandridae (e.g. triturus); most deposit the larvae into some creek or pond, some (as S.s. alfredschmidti) give birth to full developed salamanders. Depending on the kind of Fire salamander you keep, you should offer a small part with shallow (3-5 cm) water.
You can find a care sheet at http://www.caudata.org/cc/species/Salamandra/Salamandra_sp.shtml, some pictures at www.feuersalamander.com (http://www.feuersalamander.com) and on Paul Bachhausen´s page http://de.geocities.com/salamanderseiten/Salamandraseiten/Salamandra_salamandra.htm.
