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

Rep: Aidan is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Cannibalism

Hello my new hatchlings are three days old and I can now see some with no gills at which they once had, so I have decided to place them in trays like the one in the picture, 4 in 1 and 3 in the othersClick image for larger version

ID:	23298, also would this be a cause of cannibalism at the right stage

When does it often occur?

Default Re: Cannibalism

They rarely begin to be cannibalistic at only 3 days old. Usually only when they get legs. I don't know why they would have lost their gills.
