I once had clawed frogs and they bred several times.
I kept a batch of about 30 tadpoles.
I fed them dried nettles leaves reduced in fine powder, but also yeast (not too much at one time because water pollution may be dangerous).
Finally, I gave them finely powdered fish food and green algae obtained scratching dirty glasses of an aquarium.
I ended with 8 froglets.
Caution ! this species can colonize ponds and marshes in temperate country. Do not release any outdoors if you have more success than you expected.
I always used blanched then liquidised spinach, put it in some tight material then squeezed the juice into the tank. Use decent airation to keep it in suspension, spirulina and chollela powder work fine aswell.
@DarthNyQuil, what's your ph? Ammonia is non-toxic at lower ph so might not need to panic, however if you have hard water (think calcium deposits in a tea kettle), you likely have a high pH and thus should be maintaining 0. Either way, use seachem prime to dechlorinate your water and get the added benefit of making ammonia and nitrite non-toxic for 24 hours, the peace of mind is worth it.
@DarthNyQuil, to cycle more quickly/safely, see if you have a friend or trusted LFS with some filter media you could add to your filter. It will cycle it almost instantly, far better than bottled stuff. Speaking of bottled insta-cycle, some people swear by tetra safe start, although I've never used it myself so can't vouch for it. And finally to make it more safe, feel free to do larger water changes to get that ammonia lower- 90% of the bacteria you're growing is in the filter, 9% on surfaces, and maybe 1%> in the water column. So even a
100% water change won't really effect the cycle process
hey thank you all so much for your help!! i shouldn't have been so careless, but I love my axie very much and her behaviour has improved as I have started a tank cycle and gotten some good food for her
My axolotls were doing fine until the cycle int heir tank crashed. I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?
@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
