I'd love to share...well, i answered an add on gumtree advertising 10cm axolotls. I drove an hour to find these tiny axies (3cm & 4cm) in a grubby container. There was supose to be 3 but one died before i got there. The lighter one was the smallest and missing limbs and gills and looked like it was starving to death.
The lady wanted $10 each.....i offered $10 for both and she said yes she just wanted them gone!!
So she bagged them up and i took them home.
The darker one was ok and ate straight away but the lighter one took a lot of nursing back to health. It would only eat 1 frozen bloodworm every 2nd day until i put some live brine shrimp in. Thats when it grew stronger. After 3 weeks its limbs were completely grown back and gills were looking great.
Ive had them for 6wks now and they are awesome. I only wanted 1, so my wild type is for sale on gumtree.
I will miss him...he stands up on his back legs when i walk up to the tank haha.
@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
