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!

* about the pebbles, i know. i believe axolotls to be gastroliths and that they intentionally consume small rocks and pebbles for buoyancy and gut-health reasons. i have a thread somewhere, i think it’s titled “a bit of an experimentl

    how was the measurements taken, liquid or strip, if its liquid then you count how many drop it takes to change colour, each drop is one degree, if it is strip then you divide the number by 17.9 to get the degree.

  • Captive Bread:
    @FragileCorpse do you still have the AC? Put the tank where the cold air will hit the glass (I hope its glass, wood and acrylic trap heat), this usually lovers my tank by about 5 to 6 degrees. Also what lid do you use? If its a screen lid then what helps me is to spray extra in the morning so the evaporate can cool the vivarium.

    Another thing I am experimenting with is live plants. I want to believe live plants cool it too by moving water but that could just be me having to mist everything extra.

  • salamandernewbe101:
    @FragileCorpse, Salamanders require a 10-12 hour day light cycle using an incandescent light with low levels of UVB lighting recommended. Never put your tank in direct sunlight, as the sunlight can heat the tank up too much.

  • Skdecoteau:
    @salamandernewbe101, just hatched will probably need BBS. I highly recommend the Brine Shrimp Hatchery Dish from Brine Shrimp Direct. It's wicked easy. Can be ordered from Amazon, two day if you get the one without eggs & order the eggs separately.
