Firstly, I am looking at buying 5 Axolotl eggs, and I think I have a seller. I have never owned an Axolotl, but I want to do it right and all the way from the beginning.
So here come the annoying, obsessive, first-time mother questions... If I get the eggs, how do I set them up to have the most likely hood of survival? I have seen some stuff that says you can put them each in individual, small tupperwear containers. I have seen another thing that says to put them on a plant and put an air stone in the water. Everyone seems to agree that the water should be low (a few inches?) and cold (68ish?). What do you do? Do I just plop them out of the bag (I'm guessing they will come in a bag) into the water? What is water cycling? People are saying to change the water in the tank every 1-2 days. Does that mean all of the water or is that just referring to the 20%?
If I get 5 eggs, and they all hatch, how long can they stay together and then when can they reunite? Do I need separate containers, or the tank divider thing?
Something I am pretty unclear on right now is their feeding. I don't really have the space to culture Daphnia, and I don't have a place to dig for earthworms. I have seen people saying that they buy earthworms at bait shops and have an earthworm farm, but how long do earthworms live? What do frozen Daphnia require/ do those exist? I have seen something saying they feed their Axies every day, and some say every other day. How much do they need to be fed when I do feed them? What do you feed your babies, and what do you feed your adults?
Do I need an airstone and a filter or just either or?
Sorry for all the questions! Thanks for supporting me as a new future mother!
