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.)

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!

    Hi all I'm new here I'm just looking some advise on cycle witch is currently driving me insane . So we are week 8 I'm dosing daily with 4pp of amonia and for the last week has been dropping to zero witch I no is good. But my question is my nitrites are sitting at between 0.50 and 1.0 PM and nitrates are between 10 and 20 and neither of these seem to be dropping. I have done 2 40% water changes a few days ago and no change the only thing I can think of is I didnt use the seachem stability stuff which I have now ordered but surely that shouldn't have much difference this far into cycling

  • ytz13513:
    Dropping ammonia with rising nitrate and nitrite is good. It means the nitrifying bacteria is working. You just have to remove the nitrate from the water doing water changes. The level of nitrates is high and the nitrate is also high. The nitrite will be converted to nitrate using the beneficial bacteria and you can add them using quick start or allowing them to naturally grow in the tank. The latter option will take longer. The nitrate can be used by plants, so live plants can decrease the levels, but I would do a water change to get the nitrate at a level that is lower than 5 ppm. 5ppm of nitrate is natural and a good place.
