I agree they are really cool. Sorry to hear one didn't make it. I know snakes at sunset has pairs in regularly, I asked about them a couple of times but didn't end up getting any. I've also heard some speculation you might need a small group to get them to breed. I'd read up on their natural history for sure. I'm holding out for now to see how people do with the influx of WC, I'll probably get some if they are successful in keeping and breeding them.

i just got my 2 pairs of bufo typhonius today and they are awesome, look very healthy, femals have very minor nose rubs but heard it is common with them. so i have them in a 40 breeder now and already eating dusted crickets. cant wait to see how they do. might want to pick up another pair very rarely see these for sale. i got the typhonius from snakes at sunset, waiting to see when they get the mini cresteds in. i would go for it they are amazing escpially the females with the huge crest

    @MadamePirateOwl Fridging is best left to life-or-death situations, and salt baths are unnecessarily harsh, stressful, and abrasive. I'd suggest doing tea baths instead (using caffeinated black tea, where the only ingredient is black tea).

    Hard to tell without a photo, but might be algae or fungus floating. Water changes will take care of that.

    It definitely came from the axolotl. Looked to be mixed into poo the first time. Can I post the photos here?

    The second image was how it looked the first time, it was mixed with some other poop like stuff. after that its been small and without the poopy stuff

    The second photo looks reminiscent of partially-digested worms, though I've never seen anything like that. Have you checked your parameters lately?

    I use Prime to dechlorinate the water, which was recommend by the girl I got them from

    For now I'd tub the axolotl and do daily 100% water changes until you're able to test your parameters

    I'd also recommend ordering a liquid test kit such as the API Freshwater Master Test Kit since strips are generally unreliable and inaccurate.
