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.

    I do not have my Axolotl’s yet waiting for my cycle to complete! I am towards the end of my 30g fishless cycle. It has been a long journey. I have easily been processing 4ppm of ammonia in 24 hours for about a week.Each night I add 4ppm ammonia ( Dr Tims) and test every 12 hrs and nitrites read around 2ppm but when I test after 24hrs they are at 0 nitrites. I am using API master Kit. Should nitrites be constantly 0 in a 24 hour period or is a spike 12 hours later normal? Is my tank cycled? PH- is 7.4 Nitrates- 40ppm and will do water change once I am sure tank is cycled

    Hi guys! I just have a quick question regarding axoltols. I’ve had my lotl since October and she is a year old now! Anyways, her water has been on the warmer side of the spectrum (about 69-70 degrees F, 20ish C). I finally got a fan to blow over the top of the tank, and it decreased to about 64 f in 2 hours. Super happy to be able to keep the water cooler, but I was wondering if axoltols have any reaction to the water suddenly becoming cold? Should I lower the temp more slowly? My lotl isn’t acting stressed or anything, but I just want to make sure there won’t be any problems. Thanks!

  • Paige1warren:
    Also, she was fine at the higher temperature. Perfectly healthy and never showed signs of de stress. Just thought it being colder would make her happier and digest a little slower! (She’s a pig :p )

    @Paige1warren That should be fine. I wouldn't suddenly put her in very cold water without acclimatisation, but a few degrees over the course of two hours shouldn't be a problem at all.

    I have had my 2 axolotls since June 2020 and I had hoped they would mature the same gender but unfortunately they are not. I am currently on vacation and planned to separate them once I returned, my axolotls are currently being cared for by a friend who knows the basics to care for them properly. A melanoid and a leucistic. I had a feeling but didn't prioritize it enough and now I have many many eggs in the tank with both of my axolotls. I have zero experience with eggs and cannot really care for juvenile axolotls but I really DO NOT want to kill them. What should I do? Are my axolotls okay being in the same tank with them? would the eggs be okay all together in a tank by themselves? Where can I find someone to care for them and hatch them?I'm so stressed and worried I just want the best for them all.

  • axie owner:
    you are going to have to get a bucket and put the eggs in that. they can hatch anytime between 11 and 20 days. order in brine shrimp eggs and get your friend to watch a video on hatching them. make sure your friend does 100% water changes every day. keep the water around 64digres and make sure your friend sends daily updates on them. i found kitchen salt works for the brine shrimp eggs. hope this helps.

    Hi guys.. I might of made an error and need some advice. One of the hides in my tank is too small for my axie now, but I did not want to buy another hide because they are expensive, so I decided to DIY one. I used a Tupperware (cut into a little home) and glued rocks from outside and plants on it. The problem is, I washed the rocks with soap and hot water. I completely wasn’t thinking. When I washed them there was no soap residue that was visible on the rocks, and the rocks have been drying for 3 days on the container. So it has been 3 days since I washed them. I used aquarium safe silicone to glue them on. It was fully dry tonight so I decided to put it in my tank. I had it in for about 3 mins until I realized j had washed the rocks in soap, and I took it out immediately. Should I be worried??? I’m really freaking out, I don’t want anything to happen to my baby! I was truly not thinking. I also read that it was safe to use rocks from outside, but now I’m not sure? Can anyone help

    @Paige1warren, Since you took it out straight away it should be ok but I'd still be doing a big water change. When I was a teen, I took some rocks from outside, washed them (probably in soap) and put them in my turtle tank. He died a week or so later and I've never used any rocks from the garden since because you just don't know what's been on them, such as pesticide and I suppose the mineral composition of the rock comes in to play too. Letting them dry for a few days before adding them also would have helped so you should be fine

  • Paige1warren:
    @Saturn, okay, thank you so much! Firstly, I’m so sorry about your turtle :(. My lotl seems to be fine, I haven’t noticed any changes or signs of destress. I do 25% weekly water changes (I have a fully cycled tank), but I will do a 50% change today. I hope that everything turns out fine. Axies are pretty good at showing they are not well or stressed so I’m hoping that I got the rocks out fast enough. Thank you again!
