| | Re: My axolotl experience
When the vast majority of axie larvae die off rather immediately, I have to believe that there is something wrong with their environment. Maybe some salt from the brine shrimp got into the tank. Or, there was debris in the tank that started to decompose and fouled the water. I would lean towards the last scenario.
Feeding newly hatched brine shrimp is challenging because they cannot survive for long in fresh water, which means they will eventually die and start to foul the water. That is why daily water changes are so crucial.
I am sorry you had a rough experience raising baby axies. It is not an easy job. I know exactly how you feel after raising a brood of about 100. It was my part time job for a few months. I loved the experience, but it takes a serious commitment of time and resources to make it happen.
