Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Default I think I just bought a Piebald!

I saw this strangely marked axolotl a few days ago in the petshop and decided to go back in today as I heard that his coloring (from my previous post) could be quite rare! Well he was still in there so I bought him home along with his "girlfriend" and three of their Larvae, The petstore advised me that they have spawned three times in the last few months).


Tell me what you guys think! I think he's awesome even if he isn't rare but if he is that would be pretty cool too!

**I realise they should not be on gravel at all and advised the pet store so they could take it out before they received their next batch of axolotls.

If you look closely he also has a very small white patch on his stomach and a gold spot on his snout.

Well this sounds almost too good to be true! I can't see any photos posted, but hopefully it is!
If he isn't, I'm sure that you'll love him just as much, and provide a loving home.

by the looks of it, your new axie is probably full of gravel.

don't forget to quarantine your new axie, and perhaps do this in a tank or tub with no substrate at all so you can monitor what it passes.

Congrats on the lovely axie, he is gorgeous - although I would say just a pretty wildtype, rather than piebald.

Good advice from Chris, hopefully he'll pass any pieces through OK. Good luck!

Hi Chris, yeah I'm a bit worried about the gravel actually, I have him and the female quarantined and hopefully any gravel will pass without any troubles.

My other female passed some gravel a few days after I had her but nothing has come since. Still waiting on the spawning but hopefully soon!

Will he throw similar coloured larvae? I would like to experiment with colours if the black was some form of gene or something that would throw back?

good idea. it can almost be guaranteed when they come from a tank with gravel that they are carrying some in their gut.

as for spewing, they will start when they are mature and when you keep them happy and then they won't stop!

Also bare in mind that it is best not to let them spawn more than twice per yearly, as it is stressful on their adorable bodies, and can/will shorten their lifespan.

Oh, and more piccies, please.
