I heard of a media recipe from some dart frog people at the Reptile show. I dont recall the exact recipe. I think it look like this.

Banana
Apple Sauce
Oatmeal
baker yeast

I smelled their culture and it does not smell at all. Have you ever tried it? How does the exact recipe look like?
Thanks

I'm using oatmeal, orange juice, sugar and yeast and there's no smell.

This does seem like a easy media. So how is the portion of each ingredient did you use? Is it a dry yeast or wet yeast, baker yeast or brewser yeast? Orange juice with pulp?

Thanks.

It's basically the recipe from previous posts here:

1 cup oat
1/4tsp dry bakers yeast
1/4tsp sugar
no pulp OJ
set for 12 hours before added flies (~50)

I put in enough OJ so that it will seem a little wet initially, but after it ferments for 12 hours it's plenty firm (at least to wear the fly don't get stuck). I actually do 1.5 of this recipe to a 1qt deli cup.

    @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!
