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 :)

    I have had my 2 axolotls since June 2020 and I had hoped they would mature the same gender but unfortunately they are not. I am currently on vacation and planned to separate them once I returned, my axolotls are currently being cared for by a friend who knows the basics to care for them properly. A melanoid and a leucistic. I had a feeling but didn't prioritize it enough and now I have many many eggs in the tank with both of my axolotls. I have zero experience with eggs and cannot really care for juvenile axolotls but I really DO NOT want to kill them. What should I do? Are my axolotls okay being in the same tank with them? would the eggs be okay all together in a tank by themselves? Where can I find someone to care for them and hatch them?I'm so stressed and worried I just want the best for them all.

  • axie owner:
    you are going to have to get a bucket and put the eggs in that. they can hatch anytime between 11 and 20 days. order in brine shrimp eggs and get your friend to watch a video on hatching them. make sure your friend does 100% water changes every day. keep the water around 64digres and make sure your friend sends daily updates on them. i found kitchen salt works for the brine shrimp eggs. hope this helps.

    Hi guys.. I might of made an error and need some advice. One of the hides in my tank is too small for my axie now, but I did not want to buy another hide because they are expensive, so I decided to DIY one. I used a Tupperware (cut into a little home) and glued rocks from outside and plants on it. The problem is, I washed the rocks with soap and hot water. I completely wasn’t thinking. When I washed them there was no soap residue that was visible on the rocks, and the rocks have been drying for 3 days on the container. So it has been 3 days since I washed them. I used aquarium safe silicone to glue them on. It was fully dry tonight so I decided to put it in my tank. I had it in for about 3 mins until I realized j had washed the rocks in soap, and I took it out immediately. Should I be worried??? I’m really freaking out, I don’t want anything to happen to my baby! I was truly not thinking. I also read that it was safe to use rocks from outside, but now I’m not sure? Can anyone help

    @Paige1warren, Since you took it out straight away it should be ok but I'd still be doing a big water change. When I was a teen, I took some rocks from outside, washed them (probably in soap) and put them in my turtle tank. He died a week or so later and I've never used any rocks from the garden since because you just don't know what's been on them, such as pesticide and I suppose the mineral composition of the rock comes in to play too. Letting them dry for a few days before adding them also would have helped so you should be fine

  • Toothpickthelotl:
    @Saturn, okay, thank you so much! Firstly, I’m so sorry about your turtle :(. My lotl seems to be fine, I haven’t noticed any changes or signs of destress. I do 25% weekly water changes (I have a fully cycled tank), but I will do a 50% change today. I hope that everything turns out fine. Axies are pretty good at showing they are not well or stressed so I’m hoping that I got the rocks out fast enough. Thank you again!

    Can't say if this is what's being referred to, but I had some ceramic tiles in an aquarium for a while. I used a silicone sealant to secure them to the bottom and to each other. It worked well for about 6 months, but eventually a little water got through my imperfect seal and started creating mold problems
