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

Please post your photos here!

Thanks
Zac

Most of my live plants are out now because they are covered in eggs.

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;)

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.

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.

    @XxJennXx, I don't believe so. They are closely related to tigers and my tiger doesn't brumate. I think first year they might but after they see they aren't needing to, they should be good. They might try and hibernate to, mine did for the first year but now I see him crawling around right now.

    @Pookisoo, The refrigerator is a good hospital for tigers.Temperature between 7 and 2 degrees Celsius can stop bacteria. If necessary or if you dare 0 to -2 can also help.Reduce the temperature in a few days from 7 degrees to 2. After that you can reduce further. Feel free to let it sit for a few weeks. Place the animal in a plastic container with a lid with some air holes. Fill it with some soil and / or leaves. Check regularly whether there is still moisture or ice in this container. At temperatures above 2 degrees, they do not go into hibernation. They will then live on their reserves. Doing nothing is not an option, I speak from experience. You can avoid these kinds of problems by keeping them fairly dry for much of the year.

    Hi guys! I’m new to this site and a new axolotl owner. I’ve had my baby (his name is toothpick) for about a month or so now. I finally got a water testing kit and I tested the perimeters earlier today. My ammonia was at 3 ppm and my nitrite was at 2 ppm. This freaked me out because I know they are supposed to be at 0 ppm. I did a water change a little bit ago and it went down to ammonia 1 ppm and in between 1-2 ppm nitrate. I change 50% of my water weekly and clean up any pieces of waste or excess food with a turkey bastwr everyday. Could this just be because the tank isn’t fully cycled yet? Should I be concerned? Toothpick hasn’t shown any signs of distress

    @Paige1warren You need to tub your axolotl and perform 100% daily water changes. Your tank is not fully cycled, and any readings of ammonia or nitrite are toxic and potentially deadly. A fully cycled tank should at all times have readings of 0ppm ammonia/0ppm nitrite/0pmm<nitrate.
