These are pictures of my Notos. They're starting to exhibit their pre-breeding behavior (they haul out more, they're developing wide tails, et al.) I don't post pictures of them a lot because they're so fat I'm a little embarassed about it, but I limit their food, and I don't know what they're eating. I think they get up in the middle of the night and eat my pop tarts.
Other than that, I think they're healthy, lively specimens.

Hey Dawn... Nice Pics!!!

Mine are looking the same way... it is exciting. I feel the same as you do. My Noto's seem to get pudgier every day, and I have reserved feeding to once per week. They are out of the water more than they are in it. Have your's been successful in breeding before?

neat

They look very nice. I want to get a noto as I get older. I like their neat coloration.

HI Travis,
Last year I separated the females after a bit of mating so they could lay eggs in privacy and then I took them out so they could hatch...I got nothing. Then one day I was leaning over the tank and I saw a little morph! Here's his (sad) (well, happy first, then sad) story.

Maybe this coming year...

Also, that's all mine get. Five notos sharing one worm once a week and they look like whales.

awesome notos, they are one of my favorite species, and they do look pretty fat, to much milk and cookies

Hi Dawn,
I wouldn`t keep newts with tropical fish. This doesn`t give a good example. If I can take the liberty of saying this.

I've got you in a stranglehold, baby

Well, Noto Mating Season is upon me...Look how in the first picture the male looks like he has little fangs!! But it's just the way his hands are positioned. I sure did a double take until I figured it out!
Here's hoping for a Little Mack II...

    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 😊
