Hello everyone, I have a problem with my tiger, shows these dots blacks, all over the body, I have read several threads about it, that spoke of a lack of balance of the normal bacterial colonization of the skin, now do not know what to do, what known that when changing the skin, the spots go for a day or two and then reappear, I am attaching pictures, I hope you can help me, eat voraciously and is regularly active. is now in a hospital tank

How moist are its regular tank conditions? Also what substrate were you keeping it on? It could be from a ph issue.

Well he has made the metamorphosis from about a month before he was in a tank with water and stones emerged but the water has an alkaline pH. > 7.5

If I remember correctly this may be linked to the substrate being too moist. It may be worth trying to keep your tiger on a dryer substrate.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
