Rep: Renette is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Water change frequency for juveniles

Hi,
I have more baby axolotls than I expected because I was told that many would not survive and therefore let too many develop. I am reducing the amount I have by selling them but would like to spread them out more but have limited bubblers.

Do they need bubblers if I am doing daily water changes?
If they have bubblers, do I need to do 100% water changes daily?

Some are almost 5cm long. At what age do I reduce their water changes and at what stage can they go into a tank with a sponge filter and only partial water changes.

Default Re: Water change frequency for juveniles

Unless you have a filter you have to change 100% every day. Bubblers are irrelevant, and TBH not needed in any axie tank or tub.

At 2-3" they can go into a filtered tank, just watch for signs of stress due to water flow.
