There is at least one member of caudata from the uk who keeps these, i wont name directly, but he does breed and donate N. kaiseri, if that helps.

There was an importation into the UK in 2004 but none since then AFAIK. I no longer keep them and I suspect all the originals are probably dead.

I broke down and got a group of 15. This years imports seem to look like a mixed bag of juveniles and adults, mostly juvies so I suspect it will be sometime before CB start showing up regularly.

I have a wild group Melanophryniscus montevidensis 3.3 from two years ago.
They are very easy to care dislike humidity, eat a lot during the morning should be well ventilated. Withstand temperatures from 0 to 35 º C. Drown in 5cm of water ...
Once I got a spawning but the tadpoles were killed by mistake.
A few photos that I keep:

This species lives in areas of dunes near of the ocean. [Site data removed by John - we don't allow the posting of actual collection locations]

    she should be ok as axolotls can regenerate limbs, the only this i would say is to mabey feed the male more as this type of behavuor is uslay down to hunger.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

  • Asmold1:
    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
