Here is an update on the little larvae. They are still small about 1.5 inches. Eating blackworms and brine shrimp. Feels so weird still having newt larvae this time of the year. Can't wait for them to morph so they can become available.

Amazing! How do you care for them all. How many do you have. Trying to take info from other tylo breeders. I am going to try and breed Tylototriton cf kweichowensis. How many eggs can one adult female lay at a time? I will feed the little larvae freshly hatched brine shrimp. I would limit 10 big larvae in a 10 gallon. 20 small larvae in a tupperware container. Does this sound good?

Well my female T. verrucosus laid about 150 eggs. I have a friend that has T. shanjing and his female laid about the same amount. I wouldn't keep 20 larvae together in a tupperware unless it was a huge one. I kept mine in small groups of 5-8 in a medium sized tupperware that was about 4x8. After they became advanced larvae I put the groups into 5 gallon tanks with the same ratio of individuals.

I've raised T. shanjing from eggs and T.verrrucosus. I'm not sure about T. kweichowensis but the larvae from T. verrucosus were tiny, opposite of T. shanjing. The T. shanjing went straight to blackworms and the T. verrucosus had baby brine shrimp for 4 weeks. I do remember both species being very alert as larvae. I assumed they were good hunters from their alertness and kept the groups small with a lot of plants for hiding. I was trying to avoid injuries as much as possible. Good luck with your venture!

    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.

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • 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 😊
