apologies for resurrecting an old thread.

This is a fantastic enclosure Mark! Are you going to get round to putting Ambystoma in for are you going to leave it to the Lissotriton ?

Hi Will,

I think I'd need to redesign the land/ water ratio for Ambystoma so maybe I'll leave the Lissotrion be for the time being. I'm holding out for a new house with bigger garden - then the spotted sals can have their own enclosure! A cellar and large garden, is that too much to ask?

How is your Lissotriton enclosure doing now? I've already put one together for salamandra that's done well so far and I'm considering doing one for lissotriton too this year.

Best - Matt

I'm so jealous of your enclosure. I will have to talk with my good lady and build my self somthing along the same lines.

    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.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • 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 😊
