Tiger Salamander & Axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum, A. mavortium spp, etc.) The Tiger Salamanders and the Axolotl are so popular amongst hobbyists that they have been given their own topic. If you're particularly interested in the Axolotl, there is a large section of the forum devoted mainly to beginner Axolotl enthusiasts (not this topic).

My axolotl female laid over a hundred eggs and only a few of them have clear membranes (so that you can perfectly see the yolk/embryo) as in the photos on your site. The rest have a milky/foggy color to the membranes - you can still see the yolk/embryo inside but they are semi-opaque. Does this mean they are infertile or is there something else wrong with them. They seem to have developed a somewhat and have halted a bit.

Usually means they're infertile. Healthy eggs should stay reasonably clear until hatching.
