So finally got tank set up and ordered 3 axie babies but told they need to be in a tub for now as too small for tank :confused:

so as they are arriving Thursday i was wondering what size tub to keep them in and will i need 3 separate ones? at the moment i have
a tiny 10litre/2.5g tank
a 40litre/ 10g tank
a 80litre / 20g tank
and my 200litre /52g tank


they aren't 3" yet so a little panicked over what to put them in so i can feed them easierly

i could buy some small storage tubs as long as i know what size i need measurement size something like this? 23.5cm x 17cm x 7cm

I have my two babies in 16 litter plastic bins, they are a little over an inch, I have a mini sponge filter set up in there and every day I scoop them and some of their water up and put them in an even smaller Tupperware then I feed them their baby brine shrimp in there I leave them in there for an hour or so and do a 90 percent water change on their normal 16 liter bins while they are still snacking in their little bins, after im done with their water change I scoop them out of the smaller containers and put them in their 16 liter bins again so personally I would put them in your 10 liter and scoop them out into a smaller for feeding and yes keep them separated as they can become canabilistic if kept all together

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    Hi, My axolotl has just started morphing, but has some fungal spot behind the gill.

    Should I fridge therapy and salt wash? or will this not be wise when she is morphing.

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.
