So if you purchase eggs from someone and you get the axolotl they want after paying for the eggs and shipping do you have to give them back an axolotl they want if you get a rare species from their eggs? I'm literally lost how some ask for certain axolotls that you paid for back.

If you purchase the eggs, they are yours. Period. That is the luck of the draw. If they wanted the pick of the litter, then like dogs, they either stud out, or hatch the eggs and keep what they want.

The reason that they ask for them back is pure greed. They don't want to/can't go through hatching them, but they also want their cake of having a rare one to either sell for more money or keep for themselves.

They SHOULD negotiate BUYING back a rare. Or offering a discount on the eggs in exchange for if one pops up, they have dibs. Then they pay shipping, just as you did.

Thank you and I agree instead of paying for the axolotl they just want me to send it back but not pay for the axolotl just shipping. 🤷🏽‍♀️ the seller at this point is being selfish with all these stipulations after I paid for the eggs and am in the process of hatching and raising them. The seller said if you get a mosaic you must send back! 🤣🤣🤣🙄😏yeah, right 🙄 not obligated to do so.

Nope. Especially as it wasn't stated in the terms of sale/only after the sale was concluded. That person can have fun blowing smoke all they want.

No worries. It bothers me how people are nowadays. Be sure to post pictures of the little cuties!

    @lvlyvoa, good to hear, np. They love nightcrawlers and worms if you have access to them, they're the healthiest thing they can eat since they're a complete prey

    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?

    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!
