I have eggs that a week old I have ten that have already hatche. While the eggs have little axolotl features gills and eyes while the other half don't. There kept in the same tank it's been a hot week but managed to keep the tank down to 23 degrees Celsius. was wondering if anyone else has had this. I read the eggs take somewhere between 14 to 21 days to hatch and if the water was 24 degrees then 14 days. Has anyone else had this happen?

I have also noticed eggs don't hatch at the same rate. I believe it is perfectly normal. As long as the unhatched ones continue to develop, they will be fine.

If at all possible, separate out the hatchlings so you can clean up easier after feeding them. Do you have your live food ready to go? :)

Yeah I have the eggs in a small fish breeding container I'm scooping out the ones that hatch and put them in another container. Yeah I fed them some baby brine shrimp last night. It's hard to tell if they ate some. They don't move much at all. Thanks for your help

It is usually a day or so before they start eating. you will be able to tell that they are eating by the little "hiccup" movements they make when they snap a BBS, and their tummies turn orange after they's eaten a bit.

Note: hatchlings are more sensitive to chemicals than older axies (and they are more sensitive to chemicals than many fish), so be careful what dechlorinator you use. (I lost my first two batches of hatchlings, and I believe the cause was an ammonia-locking dechlorinator.)

Yeah I've down that road before I lost two of my first axolotl because of chlorine. But one survived now an adult but I use a water undersink drinking water filter and it removes chlorine. I put prime in once cause I use that on my fish and no joke I put two drops in and poor carlton straight away started freaking out scratching his skin. So yeah I used the same water from the parents. Yeah they have like all white in there tummies I'm guessing that's the egg they ate.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
