He may have passed some stones but there could be others. Don't panic, axies can hold pebbles in the gut for a long time, sometimes months.
But if you transfer him to an empty container for a few days you'll see if he's inclined to pass any more at this time.
If you check out some of the piccys in set up or the axie gallery you'll see mnay diffenet kinds of substrates uses. Some favour sand, I favour gravel. But wiht gravel you do run the risk of them ingesting the stones; if they are too small. I use the largest pea gravel I can find and slate platforms to feed them on.
The gravel i use is small enough (i assume so) that if swallowed it will be easily digested by my axies.
Like mil said you could us a slat platform to feed them from and train them to take the food from there (but then u gotta worry about the current, if any, moving the food off it), or train them to take from your hand.
I got 2 adults yesterday and to feed them i just stuck in an old plate which some pellets on it. This of course was near a current so the pellets floated off, i then moved it further back and it was fine. All you gotta do is just lead em to the food or let them find it for themselves.
I feed my juvi's by hand so they rarely look in the ground now. Sometimes they will nibble at the pellets others they will gulp it in whole.
With my adults now i will be feeding them earth worms as a staple. Basically dangle it infront of the axies face and whamo, axie got a mouthful of worm.
Also like mik said different substrates to use. Sand is easily digested as sometimes pebbles may get lodged in the digestive tract of the axie. If you do use gravel make sure it is bigger then the axies mouth or small enough that you think it will be passed.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
