I just got a new little tiger salamander yesterday! And I mean little. I’ve never seen a tiger salamander so small! He came into the store with a shipment of small waterdogs, and they told me he morphed after a few days! They didn’t have him in an terrestrial set up, but he is more than happy to venture around the land in his new home. I assume this is the small morph of tiger salamander. I have yet to decide on a name, any ideas?

Just as a reference for how small this little dude is, here he is next to Salaman. Mind you, he already has a lot of color!

I'm assuming you don't house them together right? I got nervous just looking at the little one so close to the big one's mouth. I know my tiger would try to snap anything that size up in a heartbeat!

My salamander is even smaller than yours. How much more has yours grown since August?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add

    Hello I'm wondering if fridging axolotl is necessary when giving it a salt bath? My fridge is unpredictable it just changes from freezing temperature to melting by itself. And driving me crazy. So I would not be keen to put my axie in these because of the sudden temperature changes it may experience. Can I leave him in a clean dechlorinated water tub in some of the room? Would I then need to refrigerate the salt water ? Or would I just keep it in a same room temperature?! I have everything ready for him to get a salt bath but just wanted to check about this fridging before I do ( waited for approval to join the forum:)
