I'm hoping that the one in the first picture is going to be an interesting color, but I guess we'll see! :D

I've been so fascinated by the eggs developing, but unfortunately I have no macro lens. Until today, clear pictures were impossible (though I couldn't help but try!)

First hatchling!! I found it this morning, so it must have hatched while I was asleep!! :D

It's very light, so I'm quite curious about what color it will turn out to be.

I now have four hatchlings!! The last one seems to have hatched too early though, as it's been slightly behind the others. I've read on here that it probably won't survive. :( I guess we'll see, hopefully it's just small.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
