Hi everyone,

I haven't uploaded hardly any photos lately of my animals! So I am remedying it now :)

I picked up a number of individuals on Sunday for a great chap, including a species I have been wanting for a long time - Hynobius tokyoensis.

I have 1.2.0 individuals, here are some photos for you :) ©

Thank you for looking, I am planning to breed these in the future so if anyone could help out with this particular species with their own data that would be awesome! :)

Beautiful, do not see these often.
Yeah definitely don't which is a total shame! :/ Starting to think that nowadays I might be one of the few people with them :/

They look great, always wanted to have some of those guys, do you have any pics of the full setup?
Thank you they are amazing I must admit, so happy I have them :) And sure, I have their QT and ISO set up currently but it's merely a temporary set up as I am building their permanent enclosure which will be 80/20 (Water/Land) set up but currently they are in a fully aquatic enclosure :)

Shall upload photos for you.

    I can't figure out how to take my readings and the ones I've done I don't know if they're even correct 🤔

    how was the measurements taken, liquid or strip, if its liquid then you count how many drop it takes to change colour, each drop is one degree, if it is strip then you divide the number by 17.9 to get the degree.

    @FragileCorpse, I suggest just rinsing it out with water

  • Captive Bread:
    @FragileCorpse do you still have the AC? Put the tank where the cold air will hit the glass (I hope its glass, wood and acrylic trap heat), this usually lovers my tank by about 5 to 6 degrees. Also what lid do you use? If its a screen lid then what helps me is to spray extra in the morning so the evaporate can cool the vivarium.

    Another thing I am experimenting with is live plants. I want to believe live plants cool it too by moving water but that could just be me having to mist everything extra.

    dose any one have any tips/tricks for just hatched salamanders/newts

    Unlike
  • salamandernewbe101:
    @FragileCorpse, Salamanders require a 10-12 hour day light cycle using an incandescent light with low levels of UVB lighting recommended. Never put your tank in direct sunlight, as the sunlight can heat the tank up too much.

    @salamandernewbe101, just hatched will probably need BBS. I highly recommend the Brine Shrimp Hatchery Dish from Brine Shrimp Direct. It's wicked easy. Can be ordered from Amazon, two day if you get the one without eggs & order the eggs separately.
