Looking everywhere, does anyone know where to get mudpuppies or dwarf waterdogs that are for sale? Or best places (specifically) on the east coast to try to catch some legally?

I saw this tonight. I don't know anything about the person selling, but you may want to check it out. It is on a classifieds site.

Note:
We do not condone the sale of wild caught animals, or the sites that sell them. The wild caught amphibian trade is detrimental to the species. The large scale harvesting that this requires decimates local populations.

If you want a wc animal, we advise collecting it yourself. If you do not live in the area the species you desire is found, you should spend time here on the forum getting to know people and eventually you may find someone willing to trade something they catch for something you catch.

If you spend more time on the forum, you will learn more about the negative consequences of buying wild caught specimens, and about ecology of caudates in general.
If you wish a captive bred species of newt, there are often newts advertised for sale in the ads section.
Thank you for your understanding.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

    Hey, does anyone know if hot glue is fine to glue rocks together?

  • MVM1991:
    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings

    hello, I am currently tubbing my axolotl due to cycling the tank. I have read different answers on how many times to do a 100% water change a day when tubbing. Some say once and some say twice. I just want to actually ask and get answers for myself. Thank

    As often as you need to keep the water clean! Since you´re cycling, I assume you have a test kit. Just test a few times to see how long it takes for your ammonia to go up, and as soon as it does, change the water.

  • Kwags:
    Yes,I have the master test kit. Thank you! So just test the water in the tub that my axolotl is in now to gauge off of for changing?

  • Murk:
    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?
