I'm interested in seeing the work of fire belly newt tanks (Chinese or Japanese).

Please post your photos here!

Thanks
Zac

Great thread and some fantastic tanks. I'd like to ask Janusz about the substrates he has in his tanks. Do you have any problems with the newts eating it? How do you feed them?
Thanks.

Very practical, I was surprised as you have your plants, with its substrate to clean the bottom part without any problems.

Greetings;)

...and here's my tank (houses 4 Cynops pyrrhogaster)
I know this post was done a few years ago, but I can't resist commenting... I LOVE how you have your plants in little containers like that. Such a great idea!

I love seeing planted tanks that mimic the actual habitats of the newts. Personally I think all the plastic hides and plants are too gaudy. Natural planting looks wonderful. Especially as the centerpiece of a room. All the tanks here look beautiful. I would be happy to be a newt living in these.

My 2.5ft H.orientalis tank. Two of my guys wanted to go terrestrial so i added a floating island planted with live moss , added white worms and spring tails to it. A floating woodlice island is under planning at the moment, I have added them to newt tanks before but they are very prone to running over duckweed and escaping.

Do you know what the plant is that breaks the water surface Ian?
I've had this in my FBN tank for about a year now. They love it, the roots give good cover for the youngsters and it gives them good access to the surface when they morph.

PS I have wanted to milfoil in my tanks for several years now. So I am a little jealous;)

    Hi I recently rescued a lotl (i did weeks of research before rescuing) Hes mabey 5 or 6 years of age..the previous owner could not remember the exact age of him. I got him from her as he was or had been picked on by his tank mate another lotl who was bough with him from every younger age, I noticed one of his gills, a middle one at the end had split in two? And is slightly more floppy? He also appears or mabey I'm just over worried to mabey have lost some feathers, is that normal to lose some?...all levels in the tank are fine, but wondered if theres and advice anyone could give me as an experienced owner to a new one.

  • Axolotl Queen:
    @Lanalotl Sounds like the gills may have been nipped by the tank mate. If he is in his own tank and the parameters etc are all good, then he should grow them back and they should go back to full health and strength. However, depending on how old the injury is they may not fully grow back if they have been constantly nipped at.

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening? We just did a water change and after freaking out and whipping around the tank, an hour later they look like this. It won't let me send a pic. The edges of their gills are white and it looks like they have skin shedding off

    That sounds like severe skin damage. If you post a thread on the forum, you can attach pictures.

  • Murk:
    It sounds like something went wrong with the water change, so this could be very dangerous. Did you use a dechlorinator? Could it be there are traces of chlorine or soap in the water? (Or for example, in the bucket you used?)

    Unlike
  • Murk:
    Normally, I would recommend taking them out of the tank asap and putting them in a tub with fresh water, but if there's something wrong with your tap water or dechlorinator, that might not help either. Do you have acces to bottled water or rain water?

    I think my axie is dying, he’s never had any issues before, I’ve had him 3 years, today I noticed some fluffy looking stuff coming from his genital area so I took him out of his tank and did a full tank clean to make sure the water wasn’t infected as I thought it was fungus and then I noticed he had a cut on his belly which was only small about 5 hours ago and now it’s spread to all of his belly, what do I do I’m freaking out

    Update about my axie, unfortunately he has died over night, he looked as if he was bruised allover his belly, his mucus layer had also started to come off.

    Hi I have 2 4in juveniles (I’ve had them about 2 weeks and they are doing well I think they’ve grown a little already honestly) but I am supposed to go on a 5-6 day vacation in October about 3-4 months from now. I am wondering how I should go about their care when I am gone. I thought about putting them in separate (fairly big) containers with live plants and/or bubblers with a fan in the dark and either fridging them (my last plan) but I am hoping to to either have someone I trust come feed them and turkey baste waste out or just leave them out and clean the containers before we leave and have someone come check on them once or twice. Does any of this sound like a good or bad idea? I want the best for them. All help appreciated :)
