Still trying to learn the needs completely. It's never good to impulse buy, haha. From what I understand it doesn't need light, around 78F is a good temp, and half dry/half wet is good for the substrate. He's about 8 cm long.
Upgraded his enclosure! It's at least triple the size of his old one. He hasn't come out of that log for 2 days now. I'm hoping a constant-below 60 degree weather isn't affecting him. Just kinda sucks he'll probably only be hungry once a week.
Not a Tylotriton keeper, but I can tell you that your new and improved tank looks so much better. But you're gonna want to hear that from someone who knows T. shanjing better than me. Nice newt by the way!
Overall that is a very nice looking enclosure. It is difficult to tell from the photograph however is that sphagnum moss acting as a cover over the substrate or is it the substrate itself? Also, I hope that the tank cover pictured is not what you plan to use. That looks easily escapable. Your water container is probably fine however if it were me I would provide a slightly larger one (personal preference).
I would personally ditch the sphagnum moss as you risk lowering the ph to potentially lethal levels. A great idea for a replacement is leaf litter (free from most woods and forests!). 60 F is fine although I find that tylos tend to go off their food at temperatures much lower than that.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
