The 2013 Caudata.org Axolotl Calendar Photo competition is now officially open!

It's time again for us to find 13 wonderful images for our Caudata.org axolotl calendar. Calendars are sold worldwide via the Caudata.org axolotl store.

The rules are very simple:
1) The image must be of an axolotl.
2) The image must be a minimum of 2000 x 1500 pixels, although the larger the better. Most modern digital cameras produce much larger original images.
3) You must be the owner of the photo. You will retain the copyright. By entering you give Caudata.org permission to use the image on the calendar.
4) You may enter a maximum of 5 images.

How to enter:
It’s simple – submit your photos to the following email address photocomp@caudata.org. Please attach 1 photo per email (so if you're entering 5 photos, send five separate emails with a photo attached to each). The closing date for entries is the 31st October 2013.

Images that meet the above requirements will appear in this thread for all to enjoy. Please do not post images directly to this thread.

If you're looking for inspiration, last year's winning photos can be found in this thread.

Good luck!

Just a reminder - the images that you submit MUST be a minimum of 2000 x 1500 pixels. Many of the entries so far have been less than half this size and therefore do not qualify. Even old camera phones produce images that meet the pixel requirements so I suspect email applications are shrinking them before sending.

Please ensure you attach the original, uncompressed image to the email. We need to be able to print them on a 17 inch calendar page. A postage stamp sized photo is no use.

Only images that qualify will appear on this thread.

Thanks!

    Yeah his gills is kinda small and it can be caused by nitrate level, I am taking care of it atm, I am worried about his weight, is he only overfed or are there any kinds of problems there ?

  • MVM1991:
    Well, again, I'm no expert. But I did just read axolotls are supposed to have a body about as wide as their head. The gills I'd say are the biggest problem, which could reduce oxygen intake, which could make a whole mess of problems.

    Hello, I am a new owner of a 3 month old axolotl, and although I have done a lot of research on axolotls, I can barely find any for babies. If anyone can help me with these questions, I would be super happy. How many hours do baby axolotls tend to sleep per day? How many times should I feed it and what would be considered too much (it's current diet is freeze-dried brine shrimp and blood worms, and I currently feed it around 3 bloodworms since they are not that big)? How many times a week should I change the water and how? I have a good filter and use Prime as my conditioner to remove the chlorine and other chemicals, but I still need to figure out how to deal with ammonia and such in the water. How do I clean it's waste (should I use a dropper to easily pick it up)? I need a better cooling system because currently I use ice packs on the side of the tank and I make sure to angle my ac so that it hits the tank.

    I also leave the lid open during the day so that evaporation can cool down my tank. I want to buy a fan, but since winter is coming I won't have to buy one yet. Lastly, what water testers are effective and affordable for a broke student like myself? Please, if anyone has any advice I will love to hear it. I care for this creature too much at this point, but I have no one to help me with caring for it other than the internet :,)

  • EmilyP:
    Hi LauraLobster I am a new owner of axolotls myself and have been getting advice from things like this, I feed mine twice a day on blackworms and brine shrimp blood worms are more of a treat food, a question on where you are keeping you axolotl are you keeping it in the main tank or in a tub also if in the tank did you cycle it first? and if not i suggest tubing it until the tank it cycled, mine are still tubed since I was given bad advice by the shop people about cycling my tank and am still in the process of cycling it. I use pipettes to clean up the mess of my axolotls. I use the API mater test kit for freshwater tanks I am also a student and had to look around to find it the cheapest I could.

    Hi LauraLobster, like you I got my first ever Axolotl back in July. Iv found that he has enjoyed and eaten red wigglers well. They are a good source of protein and help provide the nutrients a young lotl needs to grow up big and strong. You will probably need to break it up into smaller pieces until they get bigger but they are what I have primarily fed my buddy since I got him. He’s actually so picky that he won’t even eat his pellets anymore and will hold out till he gets his favorite wormy.
