One red cherry shrimp died which i put in a box with live tubifex, then i saw the tubifex were covering the dead shrimp. Now my question is can i still feed these tubifex to my newts ? I just bought the shrimp 5-11 days before it died. the others are doing ok, i bought the shrimps from 2 different sellers so im not sure how many days ago i bought that one.

I added a picture, could you tell me what the yellow things on the moss ball are ?

Those yellow things look like eyeballs but I'm not sure where the nose and mouth are. (This is funny).

The yellow things look like some kind of midge larvae.
It is not a good idea to use dead animals as food for your food for the salamanders.

I love that you labeled the comedic level of your comment.

    You need to take him to the vet if there's a hole that's forming in his head.

    Can't say if this is what's being referred to, but I had some ceramic tiles in an aquarium for a while. I used a silicone sealant to secure them to the bottom and to each other. It worked well for about 6 months, but eventually a little water got through my imperfect seal and started creating mold problems

    Ooh, tiles of course. I was thinking of those ceramic rings/balls you can buy as filter medium, but tiles make more sense. Thanks

    Hi there, I am a new Axolotl lover & owner of two cuties! They are little over 6 months old now. I have a divider and decided to see how they would be together because they always tried to get to each other threw the border/wall.

    Hi guys, I was wondering if I possibly crashed my tanks cycle? I’ve had a cycling tank for months now, changing 25% water weekly. I never had any problem until a few days ago when I did a 50% water change. I did this because the tank was looking extra dirty for some reason and also I siphoned too much water out trying to vacuum the sand. I noticed since that water change, my axolotl has been hiding more, barely eating, and only moving from time to time. I checked the water perimeters and they are .25 ammonia, 0 nitrite and 10 nitrate. I normally have 0 ammonia, I haven’t had above 0 since I was first cycling the tank. Did I make an error or is this just a fluke? What should I do?

    Im worried about my lil girl, she’s normally fairly active and a pig when it comes to food. Should I tub her until I figure out the tank situation? Am I overreacting lol?

    Also, she is about a year old. Her tail is perfectly straight and her gills are perky (not curled forward). She’s looking perfectly fine, just acting weird

    Sorry one more thing, when I changed the water last I removed a few plastic plants that I realized were taking up too much room. Would the removal of the bacteria on the plants mess it up?
