Time for a little update!
The three juveniles from last year, are now two...the smallest one eventually didn´t make it. Its larger siblings are doing nicely, though. For some reason they are remaining partially neotenic. One of them has small gill nubs, the other doesn´t, but both have still open branquial clefts.
I´m also raisng another two larvae from this past season, and they are doing well too, although now that my Daphnia culture has crashed, their diet is somewhat less interesting.
Unfortunately i lost one of my adult I.a.apuanus females...the largest of the two, in all probability the mother of the juvies. The death was entirely unexpected as the animal looked perfectly healthy only two days prior to finding it dead, plus the cadaver showed no signs of obvious causes at all. It seemed like a rather espontaneous thing...She will be remembered though her offspring and through the epic songs that shall make her glory legendary....and one last picture of Her Holy Chunkiness.
Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal
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.
