Rep: Maxilotl is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Help please!

Hi, i've had my axolotl for 8 years and she's always been quite healthy. She has always had a sand substrate tank and i have not changed her diet or environment recently but she hasn't been to the toilet in about 2 weeks. I've been fridging her for the last 2 days at about 6-7C and still nothing. She's still active and has no problem walking around in the container but shouldn't something have happened by now?? It seems like everyone else's on here goes pretty much straight away and i'm starting to get a little worried.

I know you have probably though of this, or ruled it out, and you know your axie pretty well by now, but sometimes my axie doesn’t go for days, and then makes up for it with an epic poo. I also suspect sometimes he does poop at night, and then disperses it around the tank with his antics while I’m asleep.

Sounds like you’re doing everything right, is she still eating at all?
