Hey guys,

I just wanted to post for those of you who may have gotten to chat or learn from our friend Francesco. The sad news is that August 9th he was killed in a car accident. We will miss him and his contributions here.
I actually had the opportunity to meet him while I was passing through Rome last year.

Feel free to post something in his memory.

Re: Franceschino

I heared this sad news a few days a go.
I have had many conversations with him through the chat.
It saddens me to think i will not be in contact with my italian "newt" friend again.

He was a kind and relax guy, who i liked being in contact with,...
For if anyone close to him would read this: i wish all his loved ones strenght,..
You rest in peace my friend,... !!

Re: Franceschino

I’m very sad to hear this news. I was only chatting to him on Facebook recently. My thoughts go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.

AW: Franceschino

Very sad news indeed. A tragic and painful loss for our little community. My thoughts are with his family and friends at the moment.

    Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol

    Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?

    @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?
