Paramesotriton maximum length

I'm not sure if alone the belly patterns are enough to pinpoint deloustali. We've seen various different belly patterns for example in chinesis. Some even didn't have balck into the orange. And I'm not entirely sure but I though I have seem some deloustali at HJ in Brugge that had different patterns as well.

Some other features that I have remembered by visiting HJ's deloustali setups were the braod flat head (impressive sight) and a much higher tail then the other species I had formerly seen (aside their total length).

They sure look quite impressive those animals from you Tim. If ever you breed them take good pictures, larvae of paramesotriton species differ and as such this might help you to pinpoint their taxonomy.

And by the way .. how do you get to have so much interesting links to articles I have never heard of before ??

Man, you can ask it in your own topic, without digging out other ones.

Hello TJ!

Can anybody top this?



(19cm or 7-and-and-half inches if perfectly straight)

Yes, I knew of the specimens in Zoological Institution in St. Petersburg, Russia preserved in a jar of 24+ cm in lengh. The species is P. guangxiensis. The exact specimens come from northern Viet Nam territories.

No, my other deloustali are less then 3 years old!
I got them as eggs from a Spanish friend.

Here you see my young male (2 years, 10 months) with my big female wich is older.

Wow, super picture. I love newt "pair photos". And this one also makes me thinking how the heck people can say "Paramesotritons are ugly" :) Those little dinosaurs are so beautiful!

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @XxJennXx, I don't believe so. They are closely related to tigers and my tiger doesn't brumate. I think first year they might but after they see they aren't needing to, they should be good. They might try and hibernate to, mine did for the first year but now I see him crawling around right now.

    @Pookisoo, The refrigerator is a good hospital for tigers.Temperature between 7 and 2 degrees Celsius can stop bacteria. If necessary or if you dare 0 to -2 can also help.Reduce the temperature in a few days from 7 degrees to 2. After that you can reduce further. Feel free to let it sit for a few weeks. Place the animal in a plastic container with a lid with some air holes. Fill it with some soil and / or leaves. Check regularly whether there is still moisture or ice in this container. At temperatures above 2 degrees, they do not go into hibernation. They will then live on their reserves. Doing nothing is not an option, I speak from experience. You can avoid these kinds of problems by keeping them fairly dry for much of the year.

    Hi guys! I’m new to this site and a new axolotl owner. I’ve had my baby (his name is toothpick) for about a month or so now. I finally got a water testing kit and I tested the perimeters earlier today. My ammonia was at 3 ppm and my nitrite was at 2 ppm. This freaked me out because I know they are supposed to be at 0 ppm. I did a water change a little bit ago and it went down to ammonia 1 ppm and in between 1-2 ppm nitrate. I change 50% of my water weekly and clean up any pieces of waste or excess food with a turkey bastwr everyday. Could this just be because the tank isn’t fully cycled yet? Should I be concerned? Toothpick hasn’t shown any signs of distress

    @Paige1warren You need to tub your axolotl and perform 100% daily water changes. Your tank is not fully cycled, and any readings of ammonia or nitrite are toxic and potentially deadly. A fully cycled tank should at all times have readings of 0ppm ammonia/0ppm nitrite/0pmm<nitrate.
