Dear Sirs,

last Sunday I noticed in a pond in south Italy (Campania region, at 600
meters above sea level) some salamanders/newts (about 7 cm long) and I
photographed them. I would be really grateful to you if you could help
me to identify them. I am not a specialist in your field (I am a chemist).Here below you can find some links I realized with the photos
of the animals I told you.

They look like Triturus carnifex (Italian crested newt)

Dear Auntie, thank you for your suggestion...here below it will be possible to see more directly the pictures with the newts. Bye for now! Giovanni:happy:

The following photos were taken in south Italy, Campania region in a pond at 600 metres above the sea level. I will appreciate very much your comments and suggestions for the identification of these animals. Thanks!

    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?

    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 😊
