Default My First P. Waltl eggs! I need help!

Hello to all who read this. I very recently purchased three adult P. Waltl. Already I have a multitude of eggs on my plants. I have only my experience in raising and hatching Axolotls. I would like to request any and all bits of information or pointers one would need to know to hatch, rear, and raise the P. Waltl to adulthood. THANKS!!!

You can treat the hatchlings just like Axolotl larvae up until they morph, then after that they will usually stay aquatic with minimum fuss, so can be treated as miniature adult waltls, just scale down the size of their food items to suit. A common mistake people make is trying to raise too many babies, unless you have unlimited supplies of Daphnia, Blackworms or similar its best to start with a small group of larvae. Attempting to raise hundreds of them without adequate food availability can cause the whole lot to starve to death, whereas ten or fifteen babies can easily be fed on live food from the petstore without breaking the bank if need be.
Here is a good article from Caudata culture if you haven't seen it already. Good luck! :)

If you do have an unlimited supply of Daphnia or other food items I would still suggest not to try to raise too many. If you don't manage to keep them all or sell them to serious enthusiasts, then it would be a shame to see them go to a pet store, where there's a chance that they will have a really bad time.
