Kanagawa is a prefecture in the Kanto area. So it belongs to the Kanto race. I almost never speak about races anymore, cause even between races there can be difference. For example: Pyrrhogaster from the Gunma prefecture (also a Kanto race) is very different in colour, they are more grey.

Beautiful newts, Joost.
Could you tell us how they are collected? Do you travel to Japan yourself?
Thanks!

There are a handfull of hobbyists who have pyrrhogaster with locality data. You just have to know where to find them. Also I indeed have a Japanese contact. Have never been there myself, would like to, but I"m scared to fly.

Yup Joost is truly a Cynops-dependent from what we can see. I must tell I like them but not close to my favourites, but always nice newts to breed. I love their larvae and their huge feathered gills. I only had 3 species and only breed 2 of those. The others were two sub-adult males so no breeding accomplished at all.

Sorry to hear about Kagawa perfecture pyrro's Joost.

Cheers,
Jorge

    hey thank you all so much for your help!! i shouldn't have been so careless, but I love my axie very much and her behaviour has improved as I have started a tank cycle and gotten some good food for her

    @lvlyvoa, good to hear, np. They love nightcrawlers and worms if you have access to them, they're the healthiest thing they can eat since they're a complete prey

    My axolotls were doing fine until the cycle int heir tank crashed. I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?

  • AkemiYousei:
    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!
