Well since creekcritter started it, I figured I would post my newt room and then if anyone else wants to post pictures......it would be cool to see everyone's setups.

OMG what a room! I am so out of my league here...

In the last picture, in the black-rimmed tank - are those axolotls?

Wow Audrey...It looks so organised and efficient.

Thanks for the showcase - it looks great!

I hope you'll forgive me if I don't show this to my axolotls...they'll mutiny! ;)

Cheers Jacq.

I'll share a few photos of my catastrophe of a newt room. It's a work in progress. Not all of the tanks are pictured because they're outside at the moment while I build more shelves because (as you can see, there are a lot of containers stacked!). Besides what are pictured I have 2 more 55 gallons, 2 more 20 gal. longs, 1 more 75 gallon, 5 more 10 gallons, and a few other odd sized ones.

...yes I know it's a mess, and they aren't great shots, but what can you do...

I'm enjoying seeing these photos (including yours on another thread, creekcritter). I'll post some of mine, but I have to wait for dear hubby to return from travel with the camera [drums fingers...]

Coen, in your third pic, that's a great idea to keep the sand and the food separated. Nice set up.

I was trying to figure out that 3rd photo. The newt doesn't seem to be inside the tank! Only after reading Jacob's comment and looking closely at the last photo did I figure it out. Brilliant!!!

Awesome set of pictures, you are very neat and organized Coen!

Just thought I would show some of my newt room. The rest I need to tidy up before I can take pictures.

    Do all impacted axolotls float? I'm worried about my two juvenile axolotls as they both have bloated stomachs and I have some plant substrate in my tank. The substrate is very small and breaks apart easity but could this still cause impaction? They are not floating at all and still eat a lot. I've been feeding them bloodworms.

  • CrazyForLotls:
    @SunnyAxies, It honestly depends on how much space you have. Two axolotls in the same aquarium would need a minimum of 30 gallons. (at an adult size) If you end up with opposite genders, you would need two 20 gal tanks. Males and females can't be kept together since they will breed and overbreeding the female is harmful to her body. Another factor would be if you think both eggs would survive. Sometimes axolotls hatch with defects and either die or should be euthanized to prevent them from living an uncomfortable and/or stunted life. It's sad, but it's for the good of the animal.

    I made a huge error, I’m about to cry because I don’t know why I was so stupid. I decided to clean the sponge and other stuff in my filter while I left the filter running. (I took out the parts in the filter to swish around in dirty tank water). Bc I left the filter running, all the gross stuff at the bottom of the filter filled into my axolotl tank. My tank is like brown now. I was trying to unclog something in my filter cuz it wasn’t running right and idk why I left it on I literally don’t know. I tried to take a bunch of water out snd replace it with fresh water but it’s STILL brown.

    Hello! New caretaker of a paddletail who is supposedly 24, and seems to have been poorly cared for. Supposedly was fed earthworms or redworms, but every time I've pet-sat for her, she just chomped at the worm once or twice and left it, to be removed a day or two later. Now I have a bigger, clean tank and have been trying mainly frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp, thawed with spring water and fed with a dropper. She ignores bloodworms, goes for the brine shrimp eagerly, but seems to spit a lot out, and ignore most. I'm not sure I can make myself chop up worms (😳) but I want to help her. She also regurgitated an inch-long, seemingly stiff, straight, dried up bloodworm! I don't even know where that came from!!! All help appreciated. Thank you.

    Hello anyone that can help! I’m a breeder and was wondering how to make pellets as well as salmon pellets! I’ve seen some recipes around but they contain crickets which I thought were no good for axolotls because of the chitin. The amount taht I have devours 2 pounds of pellets in a week 😂 so any help would be great. There was another lin las well for two other pellets but I’m not sure if it lets me open it because I am in the Us?
