Hi ,
cork may work better than a soil. I`ve been trying it for two months. I keep the animals in tubes with shallow water (about one inch) some floating plants and cork bark islands. I also tried to cover the islands witch moss but it doesn`t seem to be necessary when the tube is stored in a dark place. Feeding is quite easy. I just place small batches of tubifex on land parts . The animals are not very timid and take them very readily. They prefer to stay on land. Sometimes I see some of them in the water.

How long since these guys morphed, Juraj?

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    Anyone know how to harden soft water without raising pH?

    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 😊
