You should do a captive reintroduction program in lake Xochimilco if you keep up those numbers

I hope I don't come off as harsh, and although you may be kidding, I would advise against that seeing as the "domestic" version of axolotls are a genetic mess and would only end up contaminating the last "true" axolotls.

Additionally, Logan80, the wild-type/melanoid in the second picture looks like its gills are covered in fungus; is that being treated?

Hi Nathan,

Yeah I was joking, I guess if they were all extinct it might be a possible option. Id really like to see what a wild axolotl actually look like Ive only seen very few pics though, I wonder if they've been captive bred I saw an axolotl site from mexico that had some breeding program but it was in Spanish which I cant unfortunately read. Guess Ill have to use google translator Ill see if I can find it again and post it.

While it's wonderful to see so many axolotls together, I really worry for their health. Is there any way you can reduce the numbers in each container? Perhaps there wouldn't be so much competetion for food and less limb biting.

I try to reintroduce them, but the authorities did not allow me, I dont know why?, perhaps by the chance of survive for water quality

its not fungus, which are secreted by the mucous membrane stress of having taken from his habitat when washing your aquarium

Default Re: Axolotls from mexico ajua

I was going to put a more pc post but in the end emotion got the better of me. While I understand that when people are raising babies they have less room per axie than if you were buying an axie as a pet. I have to say that i found the 5th picture horrific to look at.
So many axolotls and yet so little space. While nipping limbs etc is unavoidable im sure that with more space this could be greatly reduced.

There must be some way you can provide your axies with more room?

Edit - my apologies, you were posting that this was a temp container while you were cleaning as I was making my post.

Sorry my fault did not specify which occurs in each photograph, they are in such containers because I was washing his bowl, I hope to upload pictures in the new container, a thousand apologies

I have to say those pictures are a bit distressing to me. I don't see why you would keep so many together if there is limb bitting going on.
