Hello everyone. I hope that I am doing this correctly.
Although I'm listed here as Dollfin, my real name is Jennie. I figured it's safe to say that since it's a pretty common name. I Live in CT USA with my Husband of 20 years and 2 teenage Sons. A few weeks ago, while doing research for a sick fish, I ended up going from link to link to link on my computer and saw a video of an Axolotl and I fell in love! I have joined this group because although, I have been arounds animals my entire life and I have even owned an Iguana and a monitor lizard I have never had a salamander. I knew that if I was going to get an Axolotl, I needed to do a lot of research and find out as much as I could about them before I started the process of actually getting one.
So here I am hoping, to learn as much as I can before I take this beautiful, fascinating and amazing little creature into my home.
Thank you very much,
Jennie

I have a feeling that's exactly whats going to happen which is why I'm here to get information. Oh and to save for a bigger tank so that I don't have to move them as they grow. :happy:

    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.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • 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 😊
