Feel free to PM me but I think there's a lot of luck involved. I am unable, despite trying, to raise shanjing.

Although Elektra is gone, her daughters Helen and Princess Leia live on. In all my years of raising T verr, today I saw something I never saw before. Princess Leia laid a STRING of eggs! Actually, she laid two strings! In the past they have only laid individual eggs. Wow!

I've noticed some of my females lay eggs in strings. Not always though, like yours, they normally lay them one at a time.

Here's another long string of eggs that were laid last night, I don't know if it's the same female that lays the strings, or if they will all do it under certain conditions.

I'm afraid not, but it seems more likely when females have been gravid for long periods before laying. The adults will breed sporadically all year round, but actual egg laying seems to be triggered to lay by changing temperature, usually falling rather than rising, but there might be more to it than that.

    Can't say if this is what's being referred to, but I had some ceramic tiles in an aquarium for a while. I used a silicone sealant to secure them to the bottom and to each other. It worked well for about 6 months, but eventually a little water got through my imperfect seal and started creating mold problems

    Ooh, tiles of course. I was thinking of those ceramic rings/balls you can buy as filter medium, but tiles make more sense. Thanks

    Hi there, I am a new Axolotl lover & owner of two cuties! They are little over 6 months old now. I have a divider and decided to see how they would be together because they always tried to get to each other threw the border/wall.

    Hi guys, I was wondering if I possibly crashed my tanks cycle? I’ve had a cycling tank for months now, changing 25% water weekly. I never had any problem until a few days ago when I did a 50% water change. I did this because the tank was looking extra dirty for some reason and also I siphoned too much water out trying to vacuum the sand. I noticed since that water change, my axolotl has been hiding more, barely eating, and only moving from time to time. I checked the water perimeters and they are .25 ammonia, 0 nitrite and 10 nitrate. I normally have 0 ammonia, I haven’t had above 0 since I was first cycling the tank. Did I make an error or is this just a fluke? What should I do?

    Im worried about my lil girl, she’s normally fairly active and a pig when it comes to food. Should I tub her until I figure out the tank situation? Am I overreacting lol?

    Also, she is about a year old. Her tail is perfectly straight and her gills are perky (not curled forward). She’s looking perfectly fine, just acting weird

    Sorry one more thing, when I changed the water last I removed a few plastic plants that I realized were taking up too much room. Would the removal of the bacteria on the plants mess it up?
