I've made an album on my galleries page called 'Nora & Pyro', there's pictures of them on there. Looking at the pictures on here, they are so different, apart from tiny hints - that's what made me originally stop thinking they were pyrrhos (or at least pure ones)

I know this is an old thread but i thought I'd add One of my boys to the pride! I was hoping for more pictures but he became quite bored and claimed he was "tired and emotional" and went all supermodel on me :)

I'll get some more pictures as soon as they emerge from the plants long enough! I wish everyone with C. pyrrhogaster would post a few pics in this thread, I love to see their almost infinite variation, even between individuals of the same race!

My males are very blue at the moment. The last photo is of the newt in my avatar. He was a beautiful juvenile with almost no markings on his belly, now he tends to get a very blue face. He's the first newt I ever raised so he's quite special.
I've a had some eggs, mostly infertile, but hopefully as spring progresses there will be more.

Most of the eggs you sent me were fertile, I lost some to fungus but a good few of them hatched. If they grow into adults half as flashy as yours I'll be very happy!
I know what you mean about the first newt you raised, I've just put my biggest/first juvenile in with the adults and I was scared stiff they would try to eat him, or he'd get tangled in the weeds and drown, get stuck to the strainer for the filter or some other freak accident...

Is it me, or are alot of female pyrrhogasters overweight? (or are they just gravid?)

I know mine are huge.

The ones in my pics were full of eggs when those pics were taken, so were Eve's I'm sure. They don't look like that all year round! ;)

okay...that makes me feel better. Mine have gained a ton of weight in the last couple months, and I was nervous they were getting unhealthy. But they are laying eggs, so I guess its normal. I'll keep an eye on their weight when they are done laying the eggs.

Okay...I will try to put one up in the next day or two. I play basketball on wednesdays and I do not have any strength afterward for picture taking. I am planning to clean some tanks tomorrow so I will snap some pics of my fat female for your viewing pleasure.

It's that time of year again! This year, my adult male has some of his adolescent sons to contend with. Most of them will be moving out soon, but he must have the patients of a saint to be so tolerant of them following him round, cramping his style!

Well, I really don't know what to say about these photos. They're of a pyrrho so I'll post them here. Rodrigo, you wanted to see photos - this is one your girls.

    @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.
