Not the greatest snapshot but you get the idea. :) About 50 gallons water volume, lots of plants and hiding places. I do have a few fish, snails and shrimp as clean-up crew and nobody bothers anybody else. There are three female young adult P. waltl, all about 7-8" long.

Resurrecting this thread which I see has some old broken links; here's a current photo of my 50-gallon P. waltl planted tank. (The wood is resin but plants and moss are real.) It's been established for over 3 years and houses three females, one wild-type and two leucistic. Shown here is Gussy, a little over 8" long.

Hi, I was wondering what you have on the bottom of your tank. I'm trying to figure out substrate for plants at the bottom of mine. Thanks for any info, K

    Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol

    Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?
