A few minutes ago I wish you good luck with them and now I see that one has morphed today. Excellent. Congratulations!

This is amazing! Great set of pictures, and lovely video footage. I changed my Kweis tank today from a dry, terrestrial setup to a partly aquatic one, and the male was straight into the water. Hopefully they will decide to breed this year!

How long are they? They seem to be a little bit smaller than my juvies, when they became land invaders. Mine were 6 cm when they morphed. (of course it shouldn't be a problem if they are smaller: they will catch up later).

Unfortunately I'm the only one with succes breeding them in the Netherlands (I lost 2 out of 7).
I hope this year will bring good luck breeding them again, and not only for me :p

AW: Re: T. kweichowensis breeding.

Hey Joost,
during Spring and Autum my Kweichowensis are outside in the garden and before the Winter they were still Larvae in the water. So I took them into the basement during this long and cold winter. They are in 5° cold water and those 26 juveniles you saw at the picture morphed very small ( 3-4cm). It was very laboriously to feed them up. But now they are wonderful and there are still 40 in the water. Now the tank is heated and the larvaes prosper in the water round 7-8cm. So they might become landinvaders like yours with 6cm,
ummi

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

  • faebugz:
    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

  • AnimeDan:
    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 😊
