Happy New Couple Alert!!! Milo and Ernie :-)

This is a discussion on Happy New Couple Alert!!! Milo and Ernie :-) within the Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding forums, part of the Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) category; Today I added Ernie to the tank after rescuing him from a so-called vivarium &#40;where there is probably more death ...

Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Today I added Ernie to the tank after rescuing him from a so-called vivarium (where there is probably more death than life... gah!) and within 4 hours he was dancing up a storm and leaving presents around the tank! Don't get too excited. I don't have the time nor resources to breed axies and will have to cull the eggs as soon as she lays them Click the image to open in full size. but, it is for the best. But onto happier things!! Milo, as you all know, is my pretty albino girl you see happily posing (as per usual). Ernie is my new big boy. And well, you recognize the spermatophores. I just wanted to supply those photos for newer people that needed pictures for recognition Click the image to open in full size. Hurray for the happy new couple!!!

Gorgeous axies, but I think that Milo is a leucistic, not albino, as her/his eyes are black Click the image to open in full size.

Shame you have to cull the eggs though. I'd probably have to do the same thing, but I've always wanted to raise baby axies.

Well. I think Milo will think next time she decides to sit on one of Ernie's mighty spermatophores. She has been laying eggs since noon today and is still going strong. I feel mighty bad for her- she has been swimming wildly about the tank and grasping her swollen backsides with her hind feet as if to try and hold the eggs in, haha. I've taken out two batches of them, about 100 eggs apeice and hope that she is coming to the end of her laying. I'll post pictures in a little bit Click the image to open in full size.

As promised! By the way, I just walked in to find Milo trying to lay some of her eggs on Ernie's head. Talk about payback!

ps. Thank you Lexie- I just always thought since the pupils were red and her pure coloring made her albino Click the image to open in full size.

OOh i didn't see red pupils! Haha maybe you should ask someone else, there's a good chance I'm wrong

That poor little axie. it'd be just like having a million babies.

Think she's a leucistic. The pic looks like she has some black in her eyes ? If her eyes are completely pink then she's albino (correct me If I'm wrong ayone ...)
