Default Re: Do these Axolotls look stressed?

Thanks so much for your reply, I thought they looked stressed but wanted to get some backup!
And appreciate the other advice - I have special aquarium sand to go in their new tank and will keep a close eye for obstructions.

I'm currently interstate but will be collecting them once I get home next week and then I will start cycling the new tank ASAP. Any idea how long approximately it takes for a tank to be fully cycled?

I've got a testing kit but am unsure whether I should use ammonium chloride drops, or a product I have seen called API Quick Start which would allow them to get into the new tank sooner. I'll also be getting the tank they are currently in, so would it help to transfer the plant and the hide from that tank across to help the cycle along?

Thoughts?

Thanks! :)
