Rep: Sam Of Kent is an unknown quantity at this point
Default What might this be? Transparent poo blob

I found these 3 items in the bottom of the Axie tank.
Semi solid jelly blobs.

I have no snails, have not done anything different apart from change over to a new external filter.

I have a spray bar fixture on, and point it at the wall. Will actually try to further soften the flow with filter material or wrap a long moss plant round it.

As far as I know...both females!

I am equally as curious. I have no idea- perhaps regurgitated mucus or something of the sort?

Edit: could it be a spermatophore? Are you sure they are both females? I don’t breed axolotls, though many on here do, and many could try sexing them for you if you aren’t sure.

Funnily enough I've had mixed feedback from Facebook groups - 60% say spermatophore...40% say not, and could be unfertilised eggs.

I have 2 axolotls, of different ages ..one is 3yr and looks Def female. The other is a young Golden of 1yr...and looks female. But I could be proven wrong??
