Old photos but I don't think I've ever posted them here.

Happy, healthy looking pyrrhos, they look like the same race as mine.
Is the old male with the broken jaw still around? I bet he would have some tales to tell if he could speak! :)

Yeah, he's still going strong. The original wild caught pair belonged to Jesper who was a Swedish member here when I originally joined the forum. They came from Sweden to the UK when he moved here for work so they are well travelled. Two have become ten since I've had them although they do like to eat their own eggs so it's amazing any survive :D

Here we go again. Just as the very last juvenile from last year has found a home the egg laying starts. The adults have been quite inactive for the last month or so, but the temp has dropped by a few degrees and they've gone nuts!

I've always loved this species. This was my first siecies if newt I had. Unfortunately the newt I got had a fungal infection and ended up dying, but he did inspire a great interest in these creatures that led to the many species I have now. At some point I want to keep this species again, although I do have Sword Tail newts now.

Just wanted to drop a line of appreciation to everyone who contributed in the thread: Thank you for posting, and more importantly thanks for preserving the species in the hobby!

I thought I'd add a few recent snaps now they have gone into full on breeding mode. Its my F1 male's second breeding season and he's gone almost completely blue! It normally takes a camera flash to bring out the iridophores (sp) but not with him. I've noticed quite a few captive bred pyrrhos that are very blue, I wonder if the lack of red pigment makes the blue brighter? He looks nothing like his parents at all.

    @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?

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.

    @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
