If you definitely want to give internal parasites to your axolotl, go ahead.

i think your best bet would be golden bell frogs if you have access to them where you come from
im currently breeding them for the same reason and if fed 2-3 times a day they can reach a max of aprox 5cm before they start growing legs and morphing into frogs.
theyre also rather easy to care for when i was younger i had aprox 15 of them i a tank and not long after there were a good 3-400 tadpoles in there aswell that i ended up just selling to a pet store az didnt hav room for all of them when they were tadpoles letalone after they mophed
and now am starting to breed them again , started a few weeks ago with 7 tadpoles fed 2 to my axie and left the others in the tank.
the bigest 1 just started growing front legs so will be a frog sune and im sure the others will sune follow
hope that helps

    @AkemiYousei thanks so much. Will do. I have also given them a tea bath before, seems to work their gills are looking so much healthier, my golden albino is swimming around frantically trying to jump out, should i be worried? my wild type is fine

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!

    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help with our axy, she absolutely loves her food and we've notice tonight after her worms( that she ate in one mouthful) that she ue was struggling to get up to the top for air. She's never done this before, she usually goes up every 5-10 mins or so. She is 6 months old and seems very healthy. Could it be a problem with our water level or water quality or could she just be to full?
