What happened to my little 3 inch baby?😂 I noticed shes started to develop more melanoid spots on her other side, and this interesting coloration on her tail! She came to me at 3 inches and skinny, and she’s now 7 1/2 and chunky😂😂 she’s not even close to a year yet! And yes, she’s in a glass jar being very stealthy.

Beautiful, she is very stealthy! That growth is insane! I notice with caudated, especially the wonderful Ambystomidae, that if not raised with extreme attention and care than switched to being raised with attention and care they can skyrocket in growth! for example, my A. tigrinum is part of a set of four, three of which are still in the care of the large nature center I got them from. he is surpassed 10 inches this year, 3 yrs old, but the four there are only 5-6 inches and the same age. (I haven't seen them in a while. They may be larger.)

Wow! That’s a big newt😂😂 Her parents were big, so I’m excited to see how big she will get

  • AMurry24537:
    @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.

  • Kmia_13:
    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?

    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.
