So I've only had about 20% of the larvae hatch. Some seem to hatch prematurely and are deformed that eventually don't make it. Has anyone had this issue before with this species or with Tylototriton in general? The big female has gone on to lay two more clutches, the second of which is starting to hatch now. We'll see if they fair any better...
I’ve been meaning to update y’all with the progress. Here are some of the larvae from a few weeks/months ago. I’m still waiting for the white one to morph. John said he’s raised these before and they come out orange. Does anyone have a pic of a morphed lighter individual?
The larvae have been morphing over the past few weeks and finally the white/lighter larvae did too. Although it’s not as light as I thought it would be, it’s still a stunner with bright yellow eyes. I included it with some other morphed individuals so you could see the contrast between them.
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
