What happened to my little 3 inch baby?😂 I noticed shes started to develop more melanoid spots on her other side, and this interesting coloration on her tail! She came to me at 3 inches and skinny, and she’s now 7 1/2 and chunky😂😂 she’s not even close to a year yet! And yes, she’s in a glass jar being very stealthy.

Beautiful, she is very stealthy! That growth is insane! I notice with caudated, especially the wonderful Ambystomidae, that if not raised with extreme attention and care than switched to being raised with attention and care they can skyrocket in growth! for example, my A. tigrinum is part of a set of four, three of which are still in the care of the large nature center I got them from. he is surpassed 10 inches this year, 3 yrs old, but the four there are only 5-6 inches and the same age. (I haven't seen them in a while. They may be larger.)

Wow! That’s a big newt😂😂 Her parents were big, so I’m excited to see how big she will get

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    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.

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

    Unlike
  • 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.

    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 😊
