yes! excuse me, the topic has been approved from not too long.
To realize I break down him/it I have used some sheets of polyethylene and then I have given to them the forms of rock using scalpel and electric welder.

are those corydoras in the second picture of the setup? What kind are they? Corydoras catfish are probably my favorite type of fish to keep. do you keep them in with the newts? I know from experience that some can withstand pretty low temperatures in the 60s (i kept some in a an unheated tank in the basement for the summer, which is also where i keep my newts). How has it been? Do the newts show any interest in them? They have those spines on their fins and are kind of slow, which is the only thing that would worry me about keeping them with newts.

yes, are of the corydorases Aeneus, Corydoras Paleatus and corydoras panda, I have together them the newts from three years, and I have never had problems, inside I also have the panjos khuli, ancistrus, a lot of caridines multidentata, snails neritina zebra. They are all cleaning beings, eaters of algas and residues of food.
I have a small world submerged of one hundred liters.

they, have enough hideaways and places where star well.
Even if the pleurodeleses are not territorial, the ideal for this tank is the paramesotriton. :)

The tank looks nice (great background!) but why on earth do you keep waltls with Corydoras?!

Why?
the corydoras are not a problem for the great creatures pleurodeles. They have been cohabiting together for 4 years.
I have sincerely taken, I sprout in nature, I have found in nature from my parts lissotriton italicus with gambusie.

Bad things may happen when eventually newt tries to eat one. Saying just in case, you never know what happens.

Corydoras do have spikes that can get lodged in the mouth or throat of a predator causing great damage and asfixiation. Definitely a risk to be considered. I realize that´s a big species of corydora, but P.waltl can get very large too. Also, corydoras require conditions which are not suitable year-round for the newts. by keeping them together you are sacrificing the optimum care of one of them or both.

    Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol

    Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?
