I just noticed all these hair looking things on the glass of my axy tank.
Also idk if the others are eggs.
Help... I put my axy in a 5 gallon for now until I know if they are safe.

Yes on my other thread let me get them. Although I didn't get any response and I started googling. Looked like it was so I acted fast and I took him out, cleaned all the rocks inside and all the decor, I vacuumed the sand, did a 30% water change. This morning there isn't any in the grass and hopefully I got most of them. I know they are good but I had a lot and I only have 1 axolotl so something wasn't balanced. My act looks happier today idk if it was that.
I will post pics of them in a bit

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?

    Does anyone know if aquacare general tonic is ok for axolotls as a treatment for bacterial or fungal infection?

  • faebugz:
    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)
