Rep: charleybambino has started on the right path
Red face Re: Axolotl with small gills

I believe that the start in life often affects future growth....size and gills....and poor nutrition in those first months often cannot be undone.I have a 5year old who came to me third hand from a pub who is only half the size of those I have raised from eggs myself. His gills are poor...yet they live and eat it can only have been his poor start.
At my daughters nursery they have his 3 siblings.....all equally small and short gilled...BUT SCOFF EARTHWORMS and are otherwise healthy.
