First question -
I have 4 adult Axolotls, I posted a picture of them. Someone had babies. I'm not sure who. I thought mom might have been my wild color axol because all the eggs were dark and they hatched pretty dark too but still clear. The babies are a few days shy of 1 month old and they are less dark than before.

Second question -
I've been feeding them brine shrimp and daphnia twice a day. Today, when I did the water change, I noticed a lot of the brine shrimp from breakfast were still there. When should I cut meals back to once a day?

The babies all look leucistic to me. Very cute! You'd probably be fine to cut back feeding to once a day if so much food is being left uneaten.

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
