Feel free to PM me but I think there's a lot of luck involved. I am unable, despite trying, to raise shanjing.

Although Elektra is gone, her daughters Helen and Princess Leia live on. In all my years of raising T verr, today I saw something I never saw before. Princess Leia laid a STRING of eggs! Actually, she laid two strings! In the past they have only laid individual eggs. Wow!

I've noticed some of my females lay eggs in strings. Not always though, like yours, they normally lay them one at a time.

Here's another long string of eggs that were laid last night, I don't know if it's the same female that lays the strings, or if they will all do it under certain conditions.

I'm afraid not, but it seems more likely when females have been gravid for long periods before laying. The adults will breed sporadically all year round, but actual egg laying seems to be triggered to lay by changing temperature, usually falling rather than rising, but there might be more to it than that.

    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.

  • 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 😊
