I think he gave me some bad reputation *Runs away and cries*

I'll nip into the pet shop to have a look at them now and again if you want?

I wonder if it would be possible to put an air pump actually inside the fridge and then close the fridge door over the mains cable. I reckon the seal would close up pretty well around the cable. You could then put some small bubbling air stones in with the fridged axies which might improve their chances a bit?

I think he did to me aswell on another post - but there was no comment - so it was completely neutural.

Etiher way, i'm not bothered because If i'm giving information, i'm being sincere and i'm sure that most other people on this forum are, and do realise that people are only trying to help.

But I also appreciate that when people are new to the forum, they're not aware of the social "exacts" that surround it, but i'm sure that he knows what he's doing and is only trying to help.

Ok so Eeny and Meeny didn't make it

Miney Mo has had no return of the fungus as yet but I still cant get him to eat.
He's still swimming around though so I'm hoping I can get him to eat at some point today.

Thanks Dan. The temp is my main worry as I dont think he'd dare put anything else in the tank.

I dont have a spare air pump and I think the bubbles would have moved them around a lot as they just weren't moving themselves.
Miney Mo is out of the fridge hoping it will increase his appetite a bit.

Thanks for your suggestions

Default Re: Rescued axies NO gills left

Just got back from the pet shop, they had the upstairs blocked off at first but then one of the staff went up and I sneeked behind him with my super awesome 007 spy skills. Had one albino leucistic axie in a tank from what I could see, no signs of stress from what I could tell. Couldn't check the temp as the thermometer was floating around the tank, but there still was a heater in there. I asked and he said they were kept between 18-20 degrees C. I said they were cold water then he said they weren't as they were from Mexico, this made me a bit annoyed to which I explained their habitat to him, then he backed down a little. But the little one looked fine, couldn't see anything wrong...for now.

Thanks Dan
I'm going to have to have yet another word with him.....grrr
i'll print off something that mentions the cold water the axolotl live in.

Not sure why he doesn't believe what i'm telling him.

Thanks guys I'll keep you all posted on Miney Mo

Thanks guys.

Miney Mo has developed a bit more fungus on his leg but I'm on top of it.
He has also eaten today YAY

I'm sure he's gonna be fine.

I'll start a new thread to progress his recovery, with pictures.
