Hi,

I thought it might be fun to post your tank picture. Can we see your newt or salamander? I have debutants that loathe the paparazzi. You don't have to give a speech or anything if you don't want to. I am sure we can figure out what it is and agree that they are awesome.

Tiger tank. Under gravel filtration, plenty of springtails, woodlice and worms. Ferns, vines and moss. Day light, as well as Led plant light, on timer. These were acquired in Nebraska as larva this spring. About 11 inches or so.

It's not much to look at, but my tiny little P. labiatus is doing well in a mostly aquatic 20 gal tank and cool room temps.

Here’s my 20 long with three alpine newts and a small school of White Cloud Mountain minnows. There are two big logs in each corner for them to haul themselves onto, which I’ve only ever witnessed once in the two years I’ve had them.

I like this thread! Let’s see more posts!

Moved 3 tigers into this 75 planted. Mini pond from Lowes into a lined container with pump and filtration. Substrate a mix of organic potting soil, coconut fiber and Repti-Soil. Pill bugs and red wrigglers, and a few springtails.

    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?
