I'm thinking about joining my two salamander tanks (both 2.5 ft x 1.5ft x 8 inches high) with a pvc tube. I'm concerned about the size difference of the two animals (8inches+ and 5 inches) the big one is female and the little one is currently unsexable. Will the big one attack the little one? I this a bad idea? thanks

I'm guessing it would probably depend on species.

brian-she is in australia and has 2 morphed axolotls. i have not kept them myself, muchless morphed ones-so i dont know how agressive of feeders they are on land. if they are like tiger sals in behaviour then it might go ok, but even my tigers occasionally will take a tail tip off each other-and they are the same sizes...are they hand fed or do you just release food into the tank for them? if the former then i'd say go for it, if they eat free roaming food they might be reflexive feeders and then it would probably be a bad idea-at least untill the smaller one catches up in size.
