Paramesotriton laoensis breeding, chapter 3

Yesterday evening I saw the first successfull mating of this season!
5 sperms by the male, 2 on the "right place" off the female.
Then biting (see photo) - for half an hour in this position.

Hi Petro,
it's interesting with this little guys!
Wenn they come into a new set up, they often walk around. Later they are more hidden.
But on some days - sometimes when I open the window - most of them also walk around.

In the meantime the female laid app. 50 fertile eggs and is still doing!
But the male is courting like crazy and sometimes successfull mating!
Usualy then the male bites the female near to where the sperm was take of, but yesterday I saw this.

Amazing journal, very inspiring. I'm also very intrigued about this theory of infertility within F2 generations and the tactics with which it will take to remedy the situation.

Looks like your colony is going to easily establish this species within the caudate scene.

Sorry I didnt mean it in that respect, I meant that you seem to have mastered the art to breeding them.

:) no problem Marco!

An other thing!
Many enthusiasts living in USA and Canada asked me to get some of my laoensis breeding!
I would like to give them to America but notice - I don't make illegale sending and I don't know a legal way!
So, sorry but not possible :-(

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew if java fern, the floaters like frog bit, anubis, and moss balls could be all kept without any substrate with the axies? I have sand right now with an axie who is over a year but we were just testing the waters really but I continously read about a lot of health issues with sand impacting constipation and hiding bad bacteria and such, we just want to make him comfy.

  • Junaz:
    I don't know about the java ferns, but the moss balls and anything that floats on the surface of the water should be totally fine! I'm not saying the java ferns aren't an option, I just personally don't know if they can live without some sort of substrate
    +1
    Unlike
  • Littlewolf:
    Java ferns actually do better when they are attached to a piece of wood or other decor anyway. Their rhizomes can be easily burried in sand and then they dont grow properly. The others can also be kept without sand no problem.

    @Chelsea smith All of the plants you've listed can be kept without substrate. Plants with rhizomes cannot be submerged in substrate, as burying the rhizome will cause the plant to suffocate and rot. You can pin these plants under on onto decoration, rocks, etc., just be careful that the rhizome is not in substrate. Moss balls and floating plants, naturally, do not need substrate either. Do note that floating plants require a good amount of light.

    Hi guys, I have an 11 month old axoltol who is about 9 inches long. She normally is a pig when it comes to food. I switch between pellets and night crawlers, and sometimes blood worms if she had a big meal the day before. Anyways, I went to go feed her a night crawler today, and she wouldn’t eat it! She turned her head and went to the corner. I noticed that when I cut this worm it seems to release a lot more goop then other worms I’ve cut, I tried to wash it off the best I could with cold water. Do you think maybe she didn’t want to eat it because of that? She normally will eat anything in front of her face. Water perimeters are perfectly normal by the way, and temp is at a steady 63 degrees F.

  • Paige1warren:
    Also, she looks perfectly fine. Tail is straight, gills aren’t curled, no fungus or anything. It’s probably no big deal, it’s just unusual behavior for her so it really caught my eye. Love my girl and want to make sure everything’s ok.
