Looks like pyrrho paradise! :) What kind of lights are you using?
Here's my adult C. pyrrhogaster tank.

Its about 35 gallons I think.
I also have an LED fixture on there at the moment, its a Beamswork double bright unit which is brilliant, but they don't seem to be available any more. I'll have a look for finnex ones as I want to convert my T. verrucosus tank over to LEDs as the fluorescents fail.
Your tanks look really healthy, what is the red plant called that's growing at the front?

Hello.

Although the pictures are not very good, I can show you some pictures of aquariums. All these tanks were dismantled long ago by moving house, hope soon to show pictures of today.

I wish Mark photos you serve

Hi Sean and ChinaDog,

What are the depths of your aquariums? I am trying to collect just this sort of information regarding specific lights, the plants that do well under them, and at what distance those plants are from the light source. Any details you care to provide are greatly appreciated!

Mine is 15" deep. I've been trying to find the spec of the Beamswork LED light fixture I use but I don't think they are available any more. I do know I posted it in a different thread on here somewhere though, so I will report back when I find it.

Edit; Its 3840 lumens.

All these amazing planted tanks and there's me with some boring rubber tubs.

Don't know if some of mine count, but here's Pirate's set-up when I still had him:

The set-up the both of the two Leopard geckos I used to own live in:


The set-up that my T.granulosa lived in before they died:

The set-up my Eastern newts lived in before I had to give them away:

The set-up my Fowler's toadlets lived in before they all died:

And, the set-up of Lucy, my rescued bearded dragon right when I had gotten her:

Here are very bad photos of all my setups.

In order, Hypeselotriton cyanurus, viewing from the end.
Hypeselotriton orientalis aquatic transition tank, viewing from the end. I also have a small terrestrial setup for the smaller ones which i haven't put in an aquatic tank yet.
Ambystoma talpoideum temporary setup.
Pleurodeles waltl, the glass is terribly dirty but you can sort of make out what the tank looks like.
Taricha granulosa outdoor vivarium, nothing in it yet, still trying to get a hold of some grans.
Ambystoma talpoideum outdoor vivarium. I will be putting them in this spring.
Ambystoma gracile larva tub, still need to add plants.
Salamandra salamandra salamandra outdoor vivarium. Hopefully they will be old enough to breed next year.

Sorry for the poor photo quality :/

Seth

Hey sorry took so long to reply...been busy, but yes I'm a big fan of the fugeray, especially the planted plus ones, they make the red plants(alternanthera reineckii variegated) really stand out. I've had it in my planted fish tank for years where it grows like crazy. Started putting cutting in there and I'm pleasantly surprised it's growing in there without the need for CO2 or other supplements.

    Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol

    Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?
