• For Sale/Give-Away/Trade Ads for all countries

      Caudata.org was founded to encourage and help people breed newts and salamanders in captivity. As a result we feel very strongly about the sale of wild-caught animals and we do not allow this practice. All for sale advertisements must be for captive bred animals. Animals that are wild-caught but are "long-term" captives can be given away. We may allow long-term captive animals to be traded, strictly at the moderators' discretion (if you have a track record/we know of you and your practices, we are more likely to approve such an advertisement).

    Commercial sellers will only be allowed to advertise on Caudata.org if they sell captive bred animals only and we also ask that you don't link your website (or any other commercial website) unless you are a captive-bred only establishment. As a commercial seller, if you do not think you meet the criteria but are unsure, please contact us.

    For everyone, private or commercial, the general criteria for approving ads are as follows:

    For Sale or Trade (amphibians):

    - Captive Bred (CB) only (must say so).
    - Must state quantity of animals available.
    - Must state age or source of animals (did you breed them or buy them?).
    - Must state price.
    - No protected species unless you can provide permits or legal papers where such things apply.
    - Must be for animals currently available (not orders for future animals).


    Free to good home:

    - Captive Bred (CB) or Long-Term Captive (LTC).
    - A history of the animals would be helpful.
    - No protected species unless you can provide permits or legal papers where such things apply.


    For Sale or trade (supplies, feeders, etc.):

    - Anything goes, within reason.


    Ads are often placed without the complete info above. This will delay the approval of your ad by the moderators, or it could result in it being removed completely.

    Users who have not complied with our forum rules (linked at the bottom of every page) will not have their ads approved. We pay special attention to whether or not you have filled the real name field and whether your country flag is listed in your profile. Also, if you have any unresolved warning or infraction, your ad will not be approved.

    Thanks to Abrahm and Jennewt for writing most of this.

Been working on this setup for a while, I think its pretty great. Unfortunately I'll be moving to California and, as you may know, Axolotls aren't legal pets in California.

I'd like to get rid of the axolotls and as much of the gear as you're interested in. What's really important is that the axolotls have a new home by The Fourth of July, but if you're willing to offer money, lemme know how much, and for what.

They're available for pickup in the Chicago loop area, and I can be flexible with timing.

Here's the details

Axolotls:
1 albino
1 natural (gray)
Former breeders: They created 2 egg clutches when still in their 10g tank. No eggs sense tank upgrade.
Both
UV genes
approx 3 years old
purchased from user Jake here on Cautadata.org
adolescents in early 2012.
Eat commercial "sinking carnivore pellets"
Don't really eat "Massivore Delite"

Tank:
28 gallons.
12(1/2)" top to bottom
12(3/4)'' front to back
30(1/2)" side to side
Custom Slate bottom. See my thread for my process.
shared

Tank Stand
Discontinued from petco.
Fits the tank front to back and side to side
29(1/2)'' tall

Fluval 206 External Filter w/ Spray bar

10+ Medium & Large Marimo Moss Balls

2 Decorative rocks, with holes for (fake) plants

Several hunks of slate that create a small cave for the axolotls to live in.

10+ Large River Stones, mostly Light colored / white, some dark

1 mostly empty Sinking Carnivore Pellets

Dropbox folder I'll be uploading images / videos to incase the attached ones fail:

They have been accounted for. If you're interested, you may still contact me, in case the exchange falls through.

If anyone could remove this thread, or tell me how, I'd do so when the exchange is complete.

Thanks!
