Hello enricolatiano,
looking at the pics you post seem to me to be excellent animals, congratulations! As for their sex, comparing the size of your hand seem to me that young animals have not reached sexual maturity, so they are difficult to sexing! However, if saying what its exact size and or age and post pics of their cloacae may be that any man can say what you want to know!
Good luck! :happy:

It is probably female... or it could be a male that has never been in breeding condition yet. Best of luck with them.

Yes. Those carnifex look very different from normal ones. Maybe those could be macedonicus?

They look a heck of a lot lighter out of the water than mine. Mine appear black when out of water.

As you were already told, juveniles are not accurately sexable (although you appear to have at least one female). Until they reach sexual maturity, the secondary sexual characteristics do not develop. What looks like a female can develop into a male.
Give them time, they grow fast and in a few months i´m sure they´ll be mature and their gender will become VERY obvious.

By the way, i do not think these are macedonicus...they look very much carnifex to me. The lightness of their colour can be caused by light, temperature, or simply because these come from a lighter blood line.

    Hi I recently rescued a lotl (i did weeks of research before rescuing) Hes mabey 5 or 6 years of age..the previous owner could not remember the exact age of him. I got him from her as he was or had been picked on by his tank mate another lotl who was bough with him from every younger age, I noticed one of his gills, a middle one at the end had split in two? And is slightly more floppy? He also appears or mabey I'm just over worried to mabey have lost some feathers, is that normal to lose some?...all levels in the tank are fine, but wondered if theres and advice anyone could give me as an experienced owner to a new one.

  • Axolotl Queen:
    @Lanalotl Sounds like the gills may have been nipped by the tank mate. If he is in his own tank and the parameters etc are all good, then he should grow them back and they should go back to full health and strength. However, depending on how old the injury is they may not fully grow back if they have been constantly nipped at.

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening? We just did a water change and after freaking out and whipping around the tank, an hour later they look like this. It won't let me send a pic. The edges of their gills are white and it looks like they have skin shedding off

    That sounds like severe skin damage. If you post a thread on the forum, you can attach pictures.

    It sounds like something went wrong with the water change, so this could be very dangerous. Did you use a dechlorinator? Could it be there are traces of chlorine or soap in the water? (Or for example, in the bucket you used?)

  • Murk:
    Normally, I would recommend taking them out of the tank asap and putting them in a tub with fresh water, but if there's something wrong with your tap water or dechlorinator, that might not help either. Do you have acces to bottled water or rain water?

    I think my axie is dying, he’s never had any issues before, I’ve had him 3 years, today I noticed some fluffy looking stuff coming from his genital area so I took him out of his tank and did a full tank clean to make sure the water wasn’t infected as I thought it was fungus and then I noticed he had a cut on his belly which was only small about 5 hours ago and now it’s spread to all of his belly, what do I do I’m freaking out

    Update about my axie, unfortunately he has died over night, he looked as if he was bruised allover his belly, his mucus layer had also started to come off.

    Hi I have 2 4in juveniles (I’ve had them about 2 weeks and they are doing well I think they’ve grown a little already honestly) but I am supposed to go on a 5-6 day vacation in October about 3-4 months from now. I am wondering how I should go about their care when I am gone. I thought about putting them in separate (fairly big) containers with live plants and/or bubblers with a fan in the dark and either fridging them (my last plan) but I am hoping to to either have someone I trust come feed them and turkey baste waste out or just leave them out and clean the containers before we leave and have someone come check on them once or twice. Does any of this sound like a good or bad idea? I want the best for them. All help appreciated :)
