Dear "worm-charmer" Juraj, how long did you have to wrestle with it before being able to take the picture?

My Grandfather used to raise nightcrawlers by the hundreds that size! I used to take them out and play with them. He would say "Put 'em back, you'll dry 'em out!" Of course, he was right.

These worms are widespread in Russia. I breed them without problems!

These are really monsters. When you say you "breed" them, Alex, how do you keep them? Do they reproduce quickly?

These are not really monsters, because really monsters have length 30 cm! (from Russian books, I don't see) I keep them in the plastic box.
They don't reproduce quickly...but eat a lot. I work with them for the worm-culture!

I agree with you Alex,

, and these exceed 30cm(not stretched out), but occasionally i dig out individuals much bigger!!
It is so wet were i find them that they will probably go aquatic in a couple of million years

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
