Mine likes to stay underground a lot of the time, so I don't get to interact with him as much as my Rough Skinned Newt (who just likes to lounge about in her water). That's alright though, he likes his tunnels. Not very shy at all, just wants to keep moving.

I kept a small colony of these guys for a while. I think they're awesome! They've got lots of personality, like a tiger salamander, in a little tiny body. I wish I could get my hands on some more.

I just bought some off a friend, and they're some of my favorites. They're all so sassy! I have them set up like tiger sals, is there anything particular to the species they need in their habitat?

I've had two larvae A. Macrodactylum for a week and a half so I can't give you any real strong impressions other than that I like them and they seem very hardy.

I was actually wondering about how much people care about this species myself since comments about them seem to pop up on sites with alot collectors every so often.

Personally I think the adults are cooler looking than many tiger salamanders as their a little more defined looking and elongated. I'd kill for one of the deep green ones.

    @lvlyvoa, good to hear, np. They love nightcrawlers and worms if you have access to them, they're the healthiest thing they can eat since they're a complete prey

    My axolotls were doing fine until the cycle int heir tank crashed. I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?

    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    @AkemiYousei thanks so much. Will do. I have also given them a tea bath before, seems to work their gills are looking so much healthier, my golden albino is swimming around frantically trying to jump out, should i be worried? my wild type is fine

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!
