Congrats everybody, there are some nice photos in here!!!

My boys were excited when they found that "Oscar" made it. I was a bit surprised as it was the first time in my life I attempted to shoot a salamander. In my opinion they are harder to capture than insects :happy:

First off, thank you for letting one of my shots get in the calendar. This is so exciting! However, the shot that you included is my lucifuga (Cave sally) shot, not my longicauda picture.

Great pictures everyone. I was wondering if I could get the picture credit on the lucifuga changed from Jefferson to Nathan/Nolan Richendollar, as my brother actually took the picture and we'll probably want a calendar or two with our names on it for posterity. Thank you so much and good tidings for Christmas and New Year!

Has anyone received their Axolotl Calendar yet?

I enquired about the link for March not working and this was their response:

Dear Ken,

Thank you for contacting CafePress.

I do apologize for the inconvenience caused but I have checked the website and the link you sent. The image for the month of March is not on the item.

If there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know.


Best Regards,

Jefferson: That's what Mark sent me so I put it up. It is named correctly on the Calendar. Give him a message and see what he says.

Zidartha:

First, I'm sick of cafepress. This will be the last time we use them. Their web site is buggy and they sure love to charge for the products (way more than they should).

With regard to that picture, it's showing up when I set the actual image for that calendar page, so there's not much I can do. I've tried resetting it multiple times and it doesn't seem to have any effect on the product page but when I edit the product I can see the image. I'm hoping that when the calendars show up (I would have thought some would have shown up by now) that it will be there. If it's not, I'll do my best to help. Keep in mind, even I have to pay for the calendars.

I have recieved my calendar and can confirm that all pictures are present and correct.

If you want another option for these calendars you could try Zazzle, I have used them on many occasions and never had any problems.

Hello. Got mine today. Very disappointed that Lydia's photo that was selected did not make the calendar. All of her submissions and second only to John's incredible pic imo. And it can never hurt to have Melanoid's represented in the calendar. :mad: They can be more challenging to photograph well.

Otherwise, it's beautiful. And I do appreciate all the work that goes into putting it together. :happy:

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

  • Caramello:
    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
