This was a post from a different forum but has salamander and newt representatives throughout. I thought the community may enjoy it.

I have been away for a while, looking forward to getting reacquainted.

Let me know if these pics are not showing up. You may need to be a member to view the actual pics. If so, I will work on getting them posted directly to this forum. I was hoping to bypass the time it would take to post them all again.

Beautiful I. a apuanus, they are very underrated these days, but I love 'em. There's all kinds of pets in our house, but its the alpine newts that visitors always comment on.

Very cool! I'm curious do you have a favorite?

To be honest, no, each species has a unique appeal to me in their own way. Probably a bit of a boring answer, but it's the truth... If anything, I'd say the N. viridescens as I grew up catching them in PA. Thank you for your interest ;)

Are they Hynobius?

No, I grew fascinated by the Ambystoma Complex(A. texanum, A. laterale, A. jeffersonianum, A. platineum, and A. tremblayi). The species Pictured is A. texanum. It was a breeding attempt that was not successful, however it was very interesting to observe them in an aquatic breeding situation. They had access to a large land section at all times with a very gradual egress. Thank you for the interest! I have many photos of intergrades if you are interested in seeing them...

I also grew up catching N. Viridescens in PA up in the Poconos :D there's definitely something special about those little red efts! :happy:

    @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?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?
