Hi,

I started this thread so that I can share some pictures of my first axolotls. They were born in March 2015 and I raised them from two little eggs that hitchhiked on some plants I got.

These are the first amphibians I've ever had and I'm learning as I go, so if you ever see anything wrong in these pictures please let me know.

Thank you Aristotle :D
I think they're wildtypes? Nothing fancy but I like their spots, though I do miss the strong contrast they had as fry.

I'm glad everything turned out alright, but in the beginning I was very nervous about caring for them. I was basing everything on what I knew from keeping fish, and whatever I found online, so I'm really just learning as I go along.

Re: Axel, Lotte and Kiekie

It's been ages since I posted, so it's time for an update.
Axel and Lotte are doing great, and last year they got another companion : Kiekie a leucistic axie I got from a lab assistant at the local university who cares for the axolotls they have there.

The past year has been stressful for all of us.
We moved to a new house and due to large renovations my Axolotls had to stay with a friend for 5 months.
This weekend I got them back, they're a bit stressed but doing fine.

Currently they have a 100 liter tank, but now that we have more room we're going to get them a 200 litter tank :D

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
