Re: My group Siberian salamander

Very cool !:happy: They remind me of North American salamander species such as the Red Backed Salamander.

Tomorrow lay larvae photo, turned out very much)))
Offtopic: if the moderators do not check my messages so long, it would be easier to spread operational information. I really hope that this will end soon;)

Start larvae from egg sacks

after the release larva sits on the bottom and a few days practically no moves. Then, the larva starts to swim and hunt for starter feed (Artemia nauplii). Intetesno feature is that at this age they are inactive and do not actively hunt, so you need to give a lot of food and carefully remove residues

Re: My group Siberian salamander

Unfortunately I can not edit your posts. Therefore, I ask the moderators to add topic name Latin name of the species that would not violate the rules of the forum (Salamandrella keyserlingii, maybe Salamandrella keyserlingii tridactyla)

Fantastic!

I have a group of large juveniles. They are very slow growing! How do you keep yours (setup, temperature, food) and how large are your breeding animals? I have read very different figures on breeding size in this species...

How cold did you allow them to get before they spawned?

Thanks Chris, I tailed amphibians are in a country house, so it is easy to arrange the winter. Now I have about 25 adults and more than two hundred larvae. It's Far Eastern subspecies, the nominal subspecies of this year I do not get divorced. In winter, the cold room on a floor of about 8°C, with the same start spawns 12-14С, eggs develop for two to three weeks (depending on temperature). Larva grows quickly enough if it translated into feeding oligochaetes and bloodworms. Artemia and Daphnia is given only to the first week

Timofeev and Rafaelli's account of breeding S. keyserlingii says that the animals must be cooled to around 0 degrees C for them to breed - does S. schrenki require less cool winter temperatures or is such a cold winter not actually necessary?

Boris - a very reputable person for me, but ... many animals we still breed a little differently many animals))) I think that the tough wintering - very high risk of dying animals, especially in Siberia and try to hold the temperature of 3-5 C I do not know how it is right now will be able to compare the two species and to clarify the conditions of detention, breeding and rearing of juveniles

Wow,

Nice!!! I have so much respect for these guys. They can survive in permafrost for such a long time, It's pretty incredible. No wonder they survived dinosaurs :)


Keep us updated please :)

    Bloodworms are not a great sole diet for small axolotl or bigger ones, though many people do use them exclusively. Your better off using eartworms which are considered a complete diet

    Hello guys! I was wondering about nitrates in an axolotl tank. If there are 0 nitrates, will that harm the axolotl?
    +1
    Unlike
  • AMurry24537:
    0 nitrates doesn't sound dangerous, but it does sound very unlikely if the tank is fully cycled. Are you positive you're performing the test correctly? If you're using the API one, that is by far the trickiest test to do right. If the reading is correct, I would guess that either your tank is not cycled, you just did like a 100% water change, or that you have plants sucking up the nitrates, but even those shouldn't leave you with 0.
    +1
    Unlike
  • Dragonfire:
    0 is fine unless the tank isn't cycled. Most tanks definitely won't run at 0, but I've had fast growing emergent plants drop nutrients so low that other plants like floaters were choked out and began dying so it isn't impossible. Some less sensitive kits may read 0 but they are just not precise enough to give an accurate low level reading too.

    Hey Yall my Axolotl has this like tail thats like a dent on the top, I was told it was meant stress but idk whats stressing out my Axolotl. The plants recently gotten moved since they were falling apart but like she's been eating/pooping fine and the temp and water tests are good for the Axolotl. So I don't really know whats causing her to be stress. Does anyone know anything?

    Hey guys! I’m having an issue with my filter and was hoping for some suggestions. I use an aqua clear 20-50 gallon filter for my 20 gallon axolotl tank. It has worked great since I got it back in December! Recently though, I’ve noticed the flow of the water has turned into more of an intense trickle than a constant flow (if that makes any sense?) I thought it may be something was stuck in the filter or maybe the sponge needed to be swished around in tank water, so I did both of these and it still trickles. It’s a very strong trickle, so the tank is still getting good filtration. It is just so loud and I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if there’s a way to fix it?
    +1
    Unlike
  • AMurry24537:
    Hmm, I don't know much about those filters, and I'm having trouble picturing what you mean, but could it be simply that your filtration media is arranged in a different way? Or maybe you're losing water content to evaporation? Just throwing out ideas. 😁 Again, I don't really know much about that kind of filter

    Hello all. My male axolotl's cloaca hasn't been looking quite right for 13 days. When I first noticed it, I immediately checked the temperature of his tank and it was around 70-71. Way too warm for him, so I took him out and have had him tubbed in the basement ever since. The temperature of his water is now 64-65. The issue seems to be that one 'half' of his cloaca is flared out and has white fuzzy stuff on it. It almost looks like a bunch of little white spikes of hair. Only one half is this way. Sometimes said half is flared out almost all the way, and other times it's almost completely back inside of him. I had him in tea baths overnight for probably five days, and then a solid 24 hours of mild tea for around three days. I don't remember exactly, my apologies.

    Unlike
  • CrazyForLotls:
    Since it was looking better (not flared out so I couldn't tell if it was still fuzzy) I put him back in plain, dechlorinated water. He gets daily water changes, always dechlorinated. The tea I used was plain black tea. The brand was Lipton and it came in a large box, purchased from the grocery store. Does anybody know what this could be? I found a couple old threads with a similar issue, but nobody ever replied to them. I can post a thread if you'd like some pictures, but they aren't very good. My camera was having trouble focusing and my axolotl kept moving.

    @Audrey22, A salt bath *might* be a good idea, but I have never heard of them used for anything but axolotls. I would think as simplistic of a setup as possible would be best. Are you a member of the newts & salamanders group on facebook? You might have better luck getting more information quickly there! lots of the same members as here.

    Ok ill on Facebook too. Thanks. I've heard tea or salt and also neosporin. Do axolots breathe and absorb through their skin like sallies? Thats what I'm afraid of. Because I don't want them to absorb salt if that will hurt them. Anyways, I'll look at Facebook too
