I have two axolotl in their juvenile stage.I know that i could put some guppies in as food and tank decoration.What about tetra fishes?Is it possible for tetras to be in the same tank as the axolotls?will the tetras harm the axolotl's gills?
Tetras don't make a good choice. Their temperature requirements are quite different, being tropical. If you want cheaper fish look for feeder guppies. Feeder guppies are hardier, less expensive and extremely easy to bread as a food source.
In regards to vacation foods its better to just not feed your axolotl unless you are on an extremely long vacation (more than two weeks) or if the axolotl is a juvenile. Leaving fish in the tank can cause a lot of problems as the fish may die and foul the water which can easily lead to the death of your axolotl. If you need someone to feed your axolotl you should find someone you really trust to feed it.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
