Happy New Year Everyone!

This morning I woke up and my axolotls had gotten past the barrier I've had up to keep them separated. Anyways, I am assuming I will have axolotl eggs very soon! If there is anyone that is local-ish I'd be happy to help get them to a breeder! Momma is a Leucistic and Poppa is a Wild type.

Take Care,
Sammy

From 1 maybe breed - whats your reasoning and proof?

I find my females that are never bred are my more prone and fussy girls.
I thought if females bred they wouldn't live as long

@Calgarycoppers I find when my female is pregnant for the short amount of time her gills get so red and she actually LOOKS healthier! After they broke down the barrier I've had up for an entire year, I was sort of proud of them :') and its breeding season here now anyways.

@Retrixy please don't bring those negative comments into my world when you have no proof. I am always open to learning new things if you have some research I can read :).

I wasn't supposed to be negative I just read somewhere so I thought it was true.

    @MadamePirateOwl Fridging is best left to life-or-death situations, and salt baths are unnecessarily harsh, stressful, and abrasive. I'd suggest doing tea baths instead (using caffeinated black tea, where the only ingredient is black tea).

    Hard to tell without a photo, but might be algae or fungus floating. Water changes will take care of that.

    It definitely came from the axolotl. Looked to be mixed into poo the first time. Can I post the photos here?

    The second image was how it looked the first time, it was mixed with some other poop like stuff. after that its been small and without the poopy stuff

    The second photo looks reminiscent of partially-digested worms, though I've never seen anything like that. Have you checked your parameters lately?

    I use Prime to dechlorinate the water, which was recommend by the girl I got them from

    For now I'd tub the axolotl and do daily 100% water changes until you're able to test your parameters

    I'd also recommend ordering a liquid test kit such as the API Freshwater Master Test Kit since strips are generally unreliable and inaccurate.
