Hi,

this is my first Notophthalmus larva. The female laid the eggs at least 13 days ago. I've found the first eggs on april 10th, but of course some could be a few days older.

Cheers,
Thomas

The older have start feed yesterday. At least I've seen the typical orange nauplii belly yesterday the first time.




Cheers,
Thomas

Fantastic, it is good to have more CB lines in Europe. Were the parents WC or CB?

The parents are WC came in as "red efts" here a year ago. On my avatar you can see one of them.

Hi Uwe,

at the moment I only can say: "the pet trade". Don't know if I can get more information.

Great news Thomas. I really love raising Notophthalmus, though we're having louisianensis instead of viridescens. I'm raising them a bit like Triturus sp. Hope you raise a lot of them.

AW: Breeding N. v. v.

So far only three at the moment, but I have 36 younger with fore and hind legs.

Few days ago I've found two very tiny larvae only with forelegs in the parents tank. I never feed them, so they had to go their way on their own...No Idea how many are there, one male is at the moment still in tank, don't wanna leave the water.

Cheers,
Thomas

I think the first leave the water today, at least tomorrow. Yesterday evening I've seen the first time the biggest larvae snaps air with the mouth. The seam is nearly gone and the gills have reduced nearly complete. Yesterday evening they were good to see, now they are very small.

The pics on the left and middle are from yesterday, the right pic is from today

I love watching this species morph. I may go to PetCo on Sunday and take advantage of their $1/gallon aquarium sale and set up 2 or 3 more tanks.

They have been my favorite ever since seeing them in the wild in South Carolina.

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    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!

    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.
