Has anyone ever kept this species I recently acquired a cbb specimen and I am facsinated by it. I have it in a 20gal natural set up with deep topsoil and leaf litter temps between 55 and 70. I’m wondering it should be kept a little warmer. This salamander hasn’t been shy at all and has been feeding well on dusted crickets and small earthworms since day 1.

No care sheet for this species yet but I have done research on the climate of their natural range in Mexico. Bred by Omni reptiles. I saw the add in the kingsnale classifieds I don’t know how old it is. One of the largest terrestrial salamanders so thats exciting.

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

    I just looked it up to see if I can find it again. It’s actually a hyGROmeter and temperature. Which measures the dew point. Here is the difference between due point and humidity. https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidityYou can calculate Th relative

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

    Hey, does anyone know if hot glue is fine to glue rocks together?

  • MVM1991:
    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings
