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?

    And even .25 ammonia is bad what you want for nitrite and ammonia is 0 and .25 for short periods

    @DarthNyQuil, what's your ph? Ammonia is non-toxic at lower ph so might not need to panic, however if you have hard water (think calcium deposits in a tea kettle), you likely have a high pH and thus should be maintaining 0. Either way, use seachem prime to dechlorinate your water and get the added benefit of making ammonia and nitrite non-toxic for 24 hours, the peace of mind is worth it.

    @DarthNyQuil, to cycle more quickly/safely, see if you have a friend or trusted LFS with some filter media you could add to your filter. It will cycle it almost instantly, far better than bottled stuff. Speaking of bottled insta-cycle, some people swear by tetra safe start, although I've never used it myself so can't vouch for it. And finally to make it more safe, feel free to do larger water changes to get that ammonia lower- 90% of the bacteria you're growing is in the filter, 9% on surfaces, and maybe 1%> in the water column. So even a
    100% water change won't really effect the cycle process

    @lvlyvoa, good to hear, np. They love nightcrawlers and worms if you have access to them, they're the healthiest thing they can eat since they're a complete prey

    My axolotls were doing fine until the cycle int heir tank crashed. I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?

    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.
