Hi !

I'd like to share some photos of my Plethodon cinereus tank.

There is a couple, CB in France, in a 80 x 30 x 30 tank.
The last photo is a good illustration of the importance of a good lid.
I built the lid to be escape-proof so that even fruit flies cannot escape.

I see these wild all the time, but I've never seen them captive before. Lovely setup! I guess they're probably more popular where they aren't common.

I know people keeping them in captivity in the US. They get super tame, believe it or not.

Right, John,

A friend of mine thought I would rarely see them but, in fact, with a lot of hide places, they are not especially shy and I can see at least one (out of two) almost every evening.

This automn, I saw them breeding three times.

    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?
