So finally got tank set up and ordered 3 axie babies but told they need to be in a tub for now as too small for tank :confused:

so as they are arriving Thursday i was wondering what size tub to keep them in and will i need 3 separate ones? at the moment i have
a tiny 10litre/2.5g tank
a 40litre/ 10g tank
a 80litre / 20g tank
and my 200litre /52g tank


they aren't 3" yet so a little panicked over what to put them in so i can feed them easierly

i could buy some small storage tubs as long as i know what size i need measurement size something like this? 23.5cm x 17cm x 7cm

I have my two babies in 16 litter plastic bins, they are a little over an inch, I have a mini sponge filter set up in there and every day I scoop them and some of their water up and put them in an even smaller Tupperware then I feed them their baby brine shrimp in there I leave them in there for an hour or so and do a 90 percent water change on their normal 16 liter bins while they are still snacking in their little bins, after im done with their water change I scoop them out of the smaller containers and put them in their 16 liter bins again so personally I would put them in your 10 liter and scoop them out into a smaller for feeding and yes keep them separated as they can become canabilistic if kept all together

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

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

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

    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.

    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 😊
