Really? ::hugs:: thank you! so nice of you to keep an eye out if i get some eggs there will be much posting and pics! It's getting colder here so the drop in temp in my tank may trigger some breeding i hope! ::fingers crossed for breeding and just eggs in general::
The site is very informative, i sell axolotls and would be happy to direct people to your site for start up info. One of the problems with noobs hitting the forums and asking advice is the differences of opinion that come up, lol, they often end up more confused than when they started, so having all the basic info on one site can only be good. I look forward to you doing an advanced care site!!! you will have your work cut out on that with all the various tank care methods lol, though i am sure you would do a good job.
Thanks for the advice - I will go and check out our local store here in town they sell bait worms which I'm sure are earthworms and go with those. You made an excellent point about neighbours using pesticides, I never thought of that. Thanks again. Very much appreciated.
Thanks for sending me the care sheet info for new axolotl owners. It was very helpful and I'm sure I will be referring to it constantly. I hope you don't mind if I ask one question; when you mention not to feed them anything from the wild, do you mean that we should not dig up earthworms from the backyard and instead source them from somewhere else such as the petshop ? I have been feeding my fellow earthworms from the yard but I'm sure there are no chemicals or pesticides that have been used in that area... Thanks again for your help. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy being a member of Caudata.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
