Hi,

This is my 112 L aquatic setup, for 5 juvenile Neurergus kaiseri with a 440 L waterfilter and a UV beamer.
I think the setup is easy to clean, what do you think about the setup?

I think it's excellent! Is the bottom of the tank made of rock?

It looks very heavy.

Is this tank setup good for anything other than cleaning (in your opinion)? If you could give a full breakdown of what materials are used and why you feel this is a beneficial setup; I believe many people may benefit from it.

Thanks for sharing!

hi,

the ground of the tank is out of two stone plate´s. the fugue (i hope thats the right word:D) are 1cm an filled up with sand. the picture is a litle bit bad so you can´t see the hole setup. but i will post some today. the land part isnt big i will show you on the pics soon. but the pets are mostly in water and very rare on land.

AW: My Neurergus kaiseri setup

Hi,


I want to have a setup who´s good to clean but also nice to view, for me and the newts. ;)
I bought 30kg of yellow sandstone (the had only yellow and red) it was really cheap for 9€ at a specialized dealer for stones and tiles. Also the 2 rockplates, the cost 20€ including the cutting into the right size. There is also a root in the tank with some very nice holes below them. But they are not shy, so they don’t use it. I have only 1 plant in the whole tank and this is a java moss. The land part isn’t big but when they need a bigger then they will get one. In time the use it not often. I have no extra light, only the light from the window in my basement and the normal light, who´s only on, when I have a look.

I think that’s all, when you have some questions ore tips for me please write me.

Sorry for the bad English :D

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
