Snapped a couple of Autumn looking pics in the pyrrho tank earlier, they are just getting their breeding colours, I thought they looked nice against the dark Oak leaves. They don't make the best hiding places though. I think the game's nearly up for Mrs pyrrho!
Has anyone else got any seasonal pics? :)

HAHA! Took me 5 minutes to realize that you had changed the quote. I couldn't figure out what you were on about :lol:

Alright then. Here you go, some seasonal pictures. And since you've already seen two of them, i'll add in some different angles.
I should also probably take more, been waiting for a while to take pictures with fall colored leaves but I've only done it with 3 species!

I don't have anything nice referring to autumn in the tank, but the smaller male is full of energy and chases ladies...I tried to capture him in a pic waving his tail but I'm too slow :)

I think you'r pyrrhos are the same strain as mine, they are eerily similar!
Are you're pics are sized too small, I can't get them to blow up from your post?

Yeah, I see that now :/ I have to try again with better time to see what happened - they were sent from my phone to e-mail since the connection by phone to caudata is too slow to attach pictures...but it's true our newts share the same looks! Where did you get your original group, do you have location?

My original trio were wild caught imports, I was told they came from Kyushu, but that's not specific enough to say for sure what race they are. They do look like sasayama and the males do the thing with their back leg when mating so that's the way I'd bet, but I'll never be 100% certain I guess.

Testing, testing...let's see how they look now when I copied them directly to computer (annoyingly they are poor colour quality when I watch them on the screen).

    I have had my 2 axolotls since June 2020 and I had hoped they would mature the same gender but unfortunately they are not. I am currently on vacation and planned to separate them once I returned, my axolotls are currently being cared for by a friend who knows the basics to care for them properly. A melanoid and a leucistic. I had a feeling but didn't prioritize it enough and now I have many many eggs in the tank with both of my axolotls. I have zero experience with eggs and cannot really care for juvenile axolotls but I really DO NOT want to kill them. What should I do? Are my axolotls okay being in the same tank with them? would the eggs be okay all together in a tank by themselves? Where can I find someone to care for them and hatch them?I'm so stressed and worried I just want the best for them all.

    you are going to have to get a bucket and put the eggs in that. they can hatch anytime between 11 and 20 days. order in brine shrimp eggs and get your friend to watch a video on hatching them. make sure your friend does 100% water changes every day. keep the water around 64digres and make sure your friend sends daily updates on them. i found kitchen salt works for the brine shrimp eggs. hope this helps.

    Hi guys.. I might of made an error and need some advice. One of the hides in my tank is too small for my axie now, but I did not want to buy another hide because they are expensive, so I decided to DIY one. I used a Tupperware (cut into a little home) and glued rocks from outside and plants on it. The problem is, I washed the rocks with soap and hot water. I completely wasn’t thinking. When I washed them there was no soap residue that was visible on the rocks, and the rocks have been drying for 3 days on the container. So it has been 3 days since I washed them. I used aquarium safe silicone to glue them on. It was fully dry tonight so I decided to put it in my tank. I had it in for about 3 mins until I realized j had washed the rocks in soap, and I took it out immediately. Should I be worried??? I’m really freaking out, I don’t want anything to happen to my baby! I was truly not thinking. I also read that it was safe to use rocks from outside, but now I’m not sure? Can anyone help

    @Paige1warren, Since you took it out straight away it should be ok but I'd still be doing a big water change. When I was a teen, I took some rocks from outside, washed them (probably in soap) and put them in my turtle tank. He died a week or so later and I've never used any rocks from the garden since because you just don't know what's been on them, such as pesticide and I suppose the mineral composition of the rock comes in to play too. Letting them dry for a few days before adding them also would have helped so you should be fine

  • Toothpickthelotl:
    @Saturn, okay, thank you so much! Firstly, I’m so sorry about your turtle :(. My lotl seems to be fine, I haven’t noticed any changes or signs of destress. I do 25% weekly water changes (I have a fully cycled tank), but I will do a 50% change today. I hope that everything turns out fine. Axies are pretty good at showing they are not well or stressed so I’m hoping that I got the rocks out fast enough. Thank you again!

  • AMurry24537:
    Can't say if this is what's being referred to, but I had some ceramic tiles in an aquarium for a while. I used a silicone sealant to secure them to the bottom and to each other. It worked well for about 6 months, but eventually a little water got through my imperfect seal and started creating mold problems

    Ooh, tiles of course. I was thinking of those ceramic rings/balls you can buy as filter medium, but tiles make more sense. Thanks
