Ok first how often should I change the water in my tank I have all the eggs 100-200 in a 10 gallon tank. Also I have seen a lot of setups on here with plants in there tubs for the babies but I can't figure out what kind they are. Any help/tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

i wouldnt recommend a 10 gallon setup for eggs
i use shallow sterilite shoe bins
eggs dont need water changes until they start hatching

Small plastic boxes are fine for eggs. They need a constant temp as fluctuations can kill them. I change water once a week with eggs.

Hatchlingd appreciate plants to hide in - pondweed is fine (and cheap).

    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
