Coastal dicamp not eating, I have 36x18x18 tank, coco fiber substrate a fogger and misting system I think the problem is keeping the temperature down. I can’t get it below 65*. I used 2 gel packs to get the temperature down to 61*. But that won’t last. Any help with temperature control would be great. Food choices also. Currently used earthworms trod dubias and chopped snails with no interest

My dicamps will only eat food that moves around. Earthworms are pretty ideal. Crickets work too. They can be a little shy about eating in front of you. Why are you trying to bring the temp below 65F? I can see doing that if the animal is sick or in rough shape but anything below 75F is going to be OK in most circumstances. They also like to swim, a deep water dish with fresh spring water (not tap) will go over well.

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    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)
