I don't think the website will 'die', there are far too many of us relying on this site!

Any idea when the upgrade will happen?
Definitely the best site for amphibian enthusiasts. Some site have rude members :/

Any chance of a true separation of the axolotl forums from the rest, or perhaps a way to "shut off" or "mute" forums one is not interested in?

I don't think a full separation of the axolotl topics would go down well - we've talked about it a few times over the years and it wasn't greeted with enthusiasm by the majority, but I understand where you're coming from.

As for blocking out certain forums, I would have to look into that. What exactly do you have in mind?

Concerning the upgrade, I know it's been a few months but I'm actually somewhat glad we didn't go ahead because there was a major update to version 4 recently which would have created extra work. The upgrade is still on my to-do list for this year.

I think perhaps an additional heading and a minor edit in the "New Posts" Drop Down would do the trick.

By giving the axolotl forum it's own new post selection link and removing the axolotls from the advanced topic selection link, this allows faster access for axie lovers AND those of us that are less interested in axolotls do not have to sort through a long list of posts that tend to mask the other forums.

Thank you for the hard work John & all of the wonderful administrators! I have just visited for the first time in about 6 months and boy, was I fascinated by all of the changes. :) I very much appreciate having this forum to talk with other caudata-crazed people. :)

Did I mention they are about to release vBulletin 5? It'll be the sequel to vTrainwreck 4.

    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.

    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 😊
