Ian, thank you for sharing your valuable experiences. Thank you for making the effort to upload these images. This is all greatly valued and appreciated. All information, 'real information' which will contribute to the successful husbandry of stock by other enthusiasts. Priceless.

Yes but you pass it on because you have used it successfully (no doubt modifying it a little according to your experiences) and have confidence in it as you know it works and that ups its value considerably.

After a winter cooling period with temps dropping to around 10c my mantella have started breeding again. Pulled a couple of batches which have started hatching over the last couple of days, the females are all looking chunky and full of eggs. I still have frogs morphing from last year and intend to increase my adult colony from 20+ to 50+, so will have a big build to do latter in the year

The first golden to leave the water, have a few hundred more to go and the adults are still laying. Should be a productive year for my colony.

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?

    Oh that’s in Fahrenheit by the way, I think in Celsius it almost got up to 24 c if I’m not mistaken

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?
