Hey so it's been awhile since I've posted, just wanted to show everyone how the gang of Mossys are doing since last time I posted pictures of them (it was back in June i think haha). Well here they are! And I will be acquiring a sex paired of Theloderma licin soon as well. Hopefully to start breeding those, but still in pursuit of a female Vietnamese Mossy. Enjoy!

Hi,

nice set-up.

Are the Theloderma in the US also surprisingly expensive? In Europe they sell off-spring for 50Euro (65 US$) each, which is in my opinion way off.

Nice animals though, but to my opinion not the big difference to Bombinas.

See you

Uwe

Thanks, the pothos has really taken over, but the frogs seem to enjoy it. Ya they sell for around $45-65 in the states here. I agree that it is a bit high for these guys. Thanks for the compliments.

Right now here in the U.S. they are selling them for up to $80.00 a piece!

Wow, see it must be my location or something. I say that, because I always see them for sale around $45-55 for juveniles and $65-70 for adults. But then again I did see one vendor at my local reptile show who had adults for $100 a piece! Now that's ridiculous if you ask me haha. But I am getting a good deal on those Theloderma licins, pretty excited about getting that sexed paired.

Next Friday will be an lecture on Theloderma species in (my local) Herp group in Frankfurt by Dennis Sylla, who has regularily off-spring. I may ask him about details and prices.

As I see the animals are fortunately good to keep and to breed, so prices will drop soon. So more people will get groups of this nice animals.

T.licins are looking totally different to cortical. A "smooth warty frog", kind of skurril naming.

Very cool indeed, that should be a good lecture I'm jealous. But ya the T. licins are groovy looking frogs. Fortunately I am receiving a sexed paired and hopefully will have myself some spawn soon enough :).

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add

    Hello I'm wondering if fridging axolotl is necessary when giving it a salt bath? My fridge is unpredictable it just changes from freezing temperature to melting by itself. And driving me crazy. So I would not be keen to put my axie in these because of the sudden temperature changes it may experience. Can I leave him in a clean dechlorinated water tub in some of the room? Would I then need to refrigerate the salt water ? Or would I just keep it in a same room temperature?! I have everything ready for him to get a salt bath but just wanted to check about this fridging before I do ( waited for approval to join the forum:)
