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;)

Re: My group Siberian salamander

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 :)

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!

  • MelissaKenyon:
    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help with our axy, she absolutely loves her food and we've notice tonight after her worms( that she ate in one mouthful) that she ue was struggling to get up to the top for air. She's never done this before, she usually goes up every 5-10 mins or so. She is 6 months old and seems very healthy. Could it be a problem with our water level or water quality or could she just be to full?
