View Full Version : Using fish cures for Axie diseases

9th June 2008, 16:22
In my search today regarding bloating in one axie I noticed lots of different problems people are facing that I have come across is years of fish keeping. Especially fungus.

There isn't much information regarding axolotl outside of this web site that I have been able to find, they don't appear to be too popular in the US. I am wondering if the cures we use for fish can be applied to axies. I keep fresh water fish and fresh water shrimp. I know some of the chemicals and medications I use for fish would kill my shrimp (for instance copper based parasite treatments and malachite green as a treatment for fungus) I wonder if the same holds true for Axies? Does anyone have a list of axie safe medications that you can find in the fish department of your LPS?

It's not an exhaustive list, but you can start here (http://www.caudata.org/cc/articles/illness.shtml). Other articles on caudate health (which includes axolotls), disease and treatment can be found in the Caudata Culture article section linked in my signature under Care Articles.

Also, axolotl.org has a list of safe/unsafe medicines (bottom of the Health page).
