Hello all its been a while....

Here is Garfield whom I got off of Eva (Evut) back in 2011, still unsure on sex as she/he looked female at one stage but now thinking he's looking male, sure you guys can help with this! Just in the middle of setting him up a new tank with lots of live plants but need to let it all settle first before he gets upgraded again :) Sorry for some of the pics tried to take some in a tub but Garfield is rather camera shy (even worse they have loaded up sideways sorry)

Ah, if you had a male to compare with side by side you'd notice the difference, believe me.

She's lovely! If ever she'd like a boyfriend let me know, I have a young adult male who would be a perfect partner for her I'm sure! :)

Here's some snaps of his mum, dad and brother so you can get an idea what he'll look like once he's fully grown up!
I keep bumping this thread hoping some other pyrrho keepers will post some of their snaps, they're very underrated as a species imo, and really do make ideal pets, so come on AuSu, Redear and everyone else who has them, Lets promote them because CB pyrrho's really are a viable alternative to sick petstore H. orientalis!

Still phone but I'll try now with one pic...these two are from the trio I got from an ex-hobbyist this autumn, male is the smallest and female the largest of the whole group of five. Great creatures :)

Some more pics...first there is one of girls that I was supposed to take a pic while deeply asleep. Well, she heard me crawling back the glass I guess ;) Then, the smaller guy getting his colors. Another guys back leg - one of the many things I like in their looks are those big feet :) The fourth photo is, again, not so good quality butI I put it in here too to see the difference between male and female tails. These are the darkest ones put pic still lies the colours (except the dirty glass...). This female is another of those two I got first, she's the most skinny of all but healthy with good appetite. The male is from the trio I got later and he's big and fat :)

I like their long toes as well. I did have a theory that the older, longer lived sasayama males had longer toes so they would be at an advantage in the breeding season. My thoughts being long toes would make it easier for them to hang on to females while tail fanning. However, my two other males that are only just mature have longer toes than their dad does, so that's pretty much proved me completely wrong!

You're very welcome. Looks like he's happy with his new girlfriend, I bet it won't be long before there's eggs. ;)

They are already side by side most of the time ;) thanks again was worried about introducing another newt to her but despite watching them like hawks they have been fine. He also took a worm no problem last night so delivery obviously did not stress him out :)

    @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.
