Here are my pride & joy, Neecie my Leucistic (she might even be a he ) and Neeko my wild type are now (he might be a she ) are 10 months old and I have had them 6 months and seen them grow so much in that time.

I think these are quite possibly the coolest species you can put in a tank. I just love 'em but have never owned any. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Lynda I think I agree

They can be so happy and so moody, they sulk its so funny and are so different from each other. Neeko the wild type is full of fun, always comes to greet me and started to eat from my fingers straight away; where as Neecie is alot more shy and even though she does eat from me she would rather not.

There is an amphibian section for questions too.
I think they are very cute! I use to have one as a kid and fed him pellets and blood worms out of my hand.

I LOVE these guys! Such cool critters. What kind of tank set-up do you have for them?

They are as easy as keeping coldwater fish, mine eat live and frozen bloodworms, earth worms and raw meats eg liver , heart. I have just sold some young ones that I bred from being eggs.

At the moment there in a 3ft tank with sand (cant have pebbles as they suck in there food and the gravel too) with just two ornaments as they walk along the bottom they need floor space, but they like to hide in things and lay ontop of things.

I was thinking about getting one of these but didn't know how to keep the water cool without investing in a chiller. How do you do it? Very cool pets BTW.
