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

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?
