I am getting a het. Lucy and Lucy next week, tank is all set up and ready to go but I need some ideas for plant placements! Could you please post pictures of your set ups? I notice there is something like this going for Axolotls for nothing for these guys! I look forward to seeing everyone's set ups!

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

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!

    Hi all I'm new here I'm just looking some advise on cycle witch is currently driving me insane . So we are week 8 I'm dosing daily with 4pp of amonia and for the last week has been dropping to zero witch I no is good. But my question is my nitrites are sitting at between 0.50 and 1.0 PM and nitrates are between 10 and 20 and neither of these seem to be dropping. I have done 2 40% water changes a few days ago and no change the only thing I can think of is I didnt use the seachem stability stuff which I have now ordered but surely that shouldn't have much difference this far into cycling

  • ytz13513:
    Dropping ammonia with rising nitrate and nitrite is good. It means the nitrifying bacteria is working. You just have to remove the nitrate from the water doing water changes. The level of nitrates is high and the nitrate is also high. The nitrite will be converted to nitrate using the beneficial bacteria and you can add them using quick start or allowing them to naturally grow in the tank. The latter option will take longer. The nitrate can be used by plants, so live plants can decrease the levels, but I would do a water change to get the nitrate at a level that is lower than 5 ppm. 5ppm of nitrate is natural and a good place.

    New here. hope this is the right place to post my question. I had 27 axolotyls aged 2-3 months old. main food has been finely chopped up bloodworms. no problems. I decided to introduce earthworms from my earthworm compost bin for variety. I finely chopped up 4 small earthworms and fed them to the babies. Within an hour 20 of the babies were dead. The remaining 7 (the smaller babies) survived and are now fine on bloodworms. Any ideas why the chopped up earthworms killed many of the babies?
