I would try it, but I think I recognize that plant. It looks like a regular land plant, maybe this body of water has unusually high water and normally that plant isn't under water. Either way, it's worth trying. Just make sure you rinse it well so you don't get any leeches or any damselfly larvae!
Thanks- I found some ceratophyllum (fairly certain) and I've decided to use it. There are lots of leeches and worms, and some scud. There are a few jelly-like blobs that could consist of snail eggs. How should I clean the plants? I've heard of dipping them in saltwater and rinsing them...
Yes, dipping them in saltwater is good, it should get rid of the bad stuff I think. those plants look kinda like the plants I just put in my tank, are they interconnected? Like where they have roots that have more than one stalk and leaf part coming from it? I think that mine will do good, and if yours are the same yours probably will too.
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
Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise
