Why can't I post to the classifieds? And what can I do to be able to?

Why can't I post to the classifieds, I'm looking for somewhere to buy/sell salamander and it kinda sucks whenever the one popular place that isn't super expensive won't let me in...

You should be able to view the classified ads and place wanted/ for sale posts in these sections. If you write in this section, your post will need to be approved first.
If you aren't able to view these sections, could you get a screen shot so we can see what is going on?

I keep posting, and it says it’s going to get reviewed by the mods or something, but the post never actually shows up after that. Maybe I just missed something in the rules?

YOu have to wait for a moderator to come on. We are all volunteers.
Furthermore, if you'd read the ad rules, we do not condone the sale of wild caught animals. we DO care if animals are captive bred or wild caught, so your ad won't be approved.
Thank you for your understanding.

I wasn't able to approve one in the wanted section a little while ago as it would be for wild caught animals.Its unlikely the animals your requested would be captive bred. If the previous posts where for these species, that'll be why. However, if we didn't approve a post we do tend to write and say why.

Okay I posted again, and I didn’t ask for any wild caught animals (Same as before my post on ringed sals.) why aren’t those going through? (I’m super sorry if I sound rude with these messages, tbh I just want more salamanders species to work with.) I’m SUPER sorry if you guys just haven’t gotten to it yet!

The animals that you are asking for are rarely bred in captivity, that is why we are unable to approve these requests. One of Caudata policies is not to ask or sell animals that may be collected from the wild .

That’s the point? I’m wanting to work with rarer animals even if they’re more expensive to get CB. This is literally the only place I have any chance of getting these animals, with the amount of people on this site, I’m sure some of them hav bred this species before.

Do you need me to specify CB for rarer species?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?

    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)

    My three inch axolotl was having trouble pooping up to a few days ago. I wasn't feeding her as often because I was scared I would just add to her constipation. I fridged her until she pooped (twice), and then began to feed her around 6 bloodworms every other day. she's been pooping everyday now, but she's at that age where you can see through her stomach and I always see poop ready to come out but has not yet passed. I don't think she's constipated anymore, but I'm not sure and i don't want to over or underfeed her... any advice?

    @Lilith, fridging is not required for fungus treatment. Read my thread on treatment.

    Its probably not pooping because its hardly beign fed, it pooped in the fridge because the lower temp caused it to purge itself. If it stays constipated you can pm me

    Hi guys. Quick question. I have newly morphed eastern newt efts. They lost their gills but they still prefer the water. I have coconut fiber, moss, hidey holes and some food in the temporary habitat for them (waiting for the other newts to morph as well). But they still run back to the water. Is it the wrong substrate? Do they prefer something other than coconut fiber? I've been doing everything else properly (According to my research) but just wondering why they haven't ventured up. Have any ideas?
