Looks like a leucistic mavortium !?

How lucky you are to have one,

in 10 years and 5 breedings ( 5 x 100 larvae) I nevet got one...(or albino)

can't wait for its metamorphosis !...

They were offered and given to me. John still has access to this individual if he needs. It'll be great if we all could have one of these one day.

I'm interested if it could breed. You should look for neotenic tigers (As impossible as that may be) and try to breed it

Usually the extraction of a neotenic individual leads to morphing. Same goes for other neotenic salamanders like plethodontids.

Neotenic individuals do breed with non neotenic partners. Especially in Barred Tiger Salamanders it's been documented. If I ever do get eggs I'll let you know!

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
