After 2 months away from my former set-ups and all the hobby stuff i left I returned to my home.
One day before I left, In 14th September I made a huge terrestrial (65 land and 35% water) tank in witch I released some of the morphs I had not been able to sale by then. Yesterday, I had the pleasing surprise to meet a enormous marmoratus advanced juvenile around 8,5cm in length from my breeding's. Also a 4cm Cynops pyrrohgaster, not as fat as the marm was, but truly more colourful than they were in September. Maybe they are more but these were the only ones i was able to find. Pretty awesome photography targets I most say, kept me busy for a hole afternoon of shooting and editing. I´ll later post some of the tank it self.
Cheers!

Thanks for the input. Sadly I couldn't get the camera in time (night was faster). So i might "present" the tank tomorrow.

Opacum: I´m using several cameras and lenses. For these pics I used Canon Rebel EOS 400D + Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM.

Cheers,

    Does anyone know if aquacare general tonic is ok for axolotls as a treatment for bacterial or fungal infection?

    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)

    My three inch axolotl was having trouble pooping up to a few days ago. I wasn't feeding her as often because I was scared I would just add to her constipation. I fridged her until she pooped (twice), and then began to feed her around 6 bloodworms every other day. she's been pooping everyday now, but she's at that age where you can see through her stomach and I always see poop ready to come out but has not yet passed. I don't think she's constipated anymore, but I'm not sure and i don't want to over or underfeed her... any advice?

    Oh ok thanks! I thought she might be ready for something more. do you have any advice about the apparent poop problem?

    @Lilith, fridging is not required for fungus treatment. Read my thread on treatment.

    Its probably not pooping because its hardly beign fed, it pooped in the fridge because the lower temp caused it to purge itself. If it stays constipated you can pm me

    Hi guys. Quick question. I have newly morphed eastern newt efts. They lost their gills but they still prefer the water. I have coconut fiber, moss, hidey holes and some food in the temporary habitat for them (waiting for the other newts to morph as well). But they still run back to the water. Is it the wrong substrate? Do they prefer something other than coconut fiber? I've been doing everything else properly (According to my research) but just wondering why they haven't ventured up. Have any ideas?

  • MVM1991:
    My guess is they simply have no reason to leave. Do they still get enough food in the water? Maybe humidity is too low?

  • Audrey22:
    I spray mist the place every day. And I do still feed him. One of them has finally come out. But now I have another problem. They don't look like eastern newts! I am posting pictures on a thread I've started. If you can, take a look for me and see. :)
