As of right now, nothing. But, I do plan on building some enclosures and collecting Pseudotrapelus siniatus and/or aqabensis and Phrynocephalus arabicus. Of course I have to buy the lumber and/or bricks, the breeder insects, and a few other things, but hopefully I could do all of that and be ready to collect animals in 2018 :happy:

Two clownfish, several blue legged hermit crabs, a coral banded shrimp and several corals in a 20 gallon all in one aquarium.

I'm still looking for an inhabitant for my newly set up 20 gallon long terrarium......any suggestions? I have a light for the plants that doesnt produce heat and my basement stays around 65 degrees. Humidity levels around 60-80% depending on how often I spritze.

We just adopted a bearded dragon. Oh my goodness, is she the sweetest. We went to the store to meet her, and all 3 of us decided she was coming home with us. She isn't full grown, but she's pretty big. She's basically a small scaley puppy. Our 2 year old races her down the hallway and gives her pets; its adorable. Does any one else own a beardie? We're trying to figure out what greens to feed her, and were just going down the list. She's so picky o.o so far she'll only eat green cabbage and mustard greens.

I have one leucistic axolotl, a double tail betta, ball python, and a cat (I call him my angsty teenager, he goes and hides in a room most of the day and only comes out for food, lol). I love making vivariums and such and hope to add some tylototriton newts to my collection for a paludarium I’m making.

I know this is an old thread, been enjoying reading it! Here’s my current roster:

Trixie K. Terwilliger - Leucistic Axolotl I raised from a baby
“New Guy” (no name yet) - GFP Wild-type Axolotl just brought home
Dr. Steve Tanaka - Firebelly newt, probably Chinese, at least 17 years old, rescued from Craigslist
Lucy - blue Parrotlet, rescue from animal shelter
Ziggy - our feline overlord, taken from someone who didn’t want him.
Sally - McNab Border Collie, rescue
Alfie - small terrier mix, maybe Cairn/Chihuahua? Rescue from shelter

My last two newts, Fluffy and Snowball, lived for at least 35 years. I’ve been a newt and salamander fan since I was a kid.

    Hi I recently rescued a lotl (i did weeks of research before rescuing) Hes mabey 5 or 6 years of age..the previous owner could not remember the exact age of him. I got him from her as he was or had been picked on by his tank mate another lotl who was bough with him from every younger age, I noticed one of his gills, a middle one at the end had split in two? And is slightly more floppy? He also appears or mabey I'm just over worried to mabey have lost some feathers, is that normal to lose some?...all levels in the tank are fine, but wondered if theres and advice anyone could give me as an experienced owner to a new one.

  • Axolotl Queen:
    @Lanalotl Sounds like the gills may have been nipped by the tank mate. If he is in his own tank and the parameters etc are all good, then he should grow them back and they should go back to full health and strength. However, depending on how old the injury is they may not fully grow back if they have been constantly nipped at.

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening? We just did a water change and after freaking out and whipping around the tank, an hour later they look like this. It won't let me send a pic. The edges of their gills are white and it looks like they have skin shedding off

    That sounds like severe skin damage. If you post a thread on the forum, you can attach pictures.

    It sounds like something went wrong with the water change, so this could be very dangerous. Did you use a dechlorinator? Could it be there are traces of chlorine or soap in the water? (Or for example, in the bucket you used?)
    +1
    Unlike
  • Murk:
    Normally, I would recommend taking them out of the tank asap and putting them in a tub with fresh water, but if there's something wrong with your tap water or dechlorinator, that might not help either. Do you have acces to bottled water or rain water?

    I think my axie is dying, he’s never had any issues before, I’ve had him 3 years, today I noticed some fluffy looking stuff coming from his genital area so I took him out of his tank and did a full tank clean to make sure the water wasn’t infected as I thought it was fungus and then I noticed he had a cut on his belly which was only small about 5 hours ago and now it’s spread to all of his belly, what do I do I’m freaking out

    Update about my axie, unfortunately he has died over night, he looked as if he was bruised allover his belly, his mucus layer had also started to come off.

    Hi I have 2 4in juveniles (I’ve had them about 2 weeks and they are doing well I think they’ve grown a little already honestly) but I am supposed to go on a 5-6 day vacation in October about 3-4 months from now. I am wondering how I should go about their care when I am gone. I thought about putting them in separate (fairly big) containers with live plants and/or bubblers with a fan in the dark and either fridging them (my last plan) but I am hoping to to either have someone I trust come feed them and turkey baste waste out or just leave them out and clean the containers before we leave and have someone come check on them once or twice. Does any of this sound like a good or bad idea? I want the best for them. All help appreciated :)

    Hi, so I have 2 male axolotls and about an hour ago they were both perfectly fine and now only one of them has his tail curling up and his gills are slightly curled?? But other than that they’re both acting normally

  • Murk:
    Could be he's just excited, spooked or temporarily stressed, which could pass in a few hours. It could also be an indicator of other problems. Do you have any recent water parameters?

    Does anyone have any idea how to help with high ammonia levels? I have the API freshwater master kit and everything else’s test results were great besides ammonia. I did a 50% water change and I use API products including ammonia lock.

    Help! I got my first axolotl two days ago and they have stopped eating. They ate a few frozen blood worms the first day and haven’t eaten or been interested in food since. I feed them frozen blood worms and the tank is around 64 degrees. I do have a filter that moves sometimes and I noticed them swimming up to it, I have a new filter and a fan coming today or tomorrow. I leave the worms in the tank or a little bit before taking them out so I don’t know if they ate when I wasn’t looking. I know it takes a while for them to digest. Does anyone have any tips or knowledge they can share? The pet store I bought them from didn’t have gravel or sand in the tank so I’m not sure if theres an issue or if I’m just impatient. Thank you!

    @MuggleMiChu, how big they are? also for substrate, i would not do gravel at all I would either do sand or none at all!

    They are about 2-3 inches long and I have them in a bare bottom tank

  • HalfDrunkToast:
    @MuggleMiChu I would say try live black/blood worms untell they are full or just turn there head away ( that's what mine do) if that does not work try to get some live brine shrimp and see if they eat that. baby axolotl prefer live food over frozen food as the frozen food is too cold for them or they can't eat it in one go( that's if you do the blocks) mine eat chopped up frozen thawed shrimp. as for them not eating from what I have experienced with my second axolotl, I got her when she was about an inch long and she ate every day, when they start getting 3-4 inches long they will gradually slow down there eating. and if you really want to do substrate I would do sand because if they do ingest a little bit it won't hurt them.

  • MuggleMiChu:
    Thank you so much for the information and advice! They are eating again, they ate a lot today. I think it might have been stress from the move or digesting old food, I also noticed they ate some of the food left in the tank (I removed the rest). I’m going to keep the tank bare bottom.
