Default Any way to prevent breeding?

So I just rescaped my 60gal for my axolotls and now Im worried about them breeding. Theyve done it randomly before. Its just that this time it would be very difficult to remove the eggs and I wouldnt feel right just letting them hatch and die. Is there any way to prevent breeding without relocating the male?

No. There is no axie birth control.

Yep no way except separation. A divider will probably work but I've heard many times of axolotls getting through haha

We kept 2 55 gallon main tanks, one for females and one for males. We also have a 40 gallon grow out tank that is used to house juvies once they pass their qt period to live in prior to sexing.

At this point in time, the only birth control that works for axies is abstinence.
