Hi, welcome to the site. :)
caudata.org is mostly about conservation and education, so divulging details of where to find wild populations of a particular species is not allowed. Sorry to be so negative to a new member, so please don't be put off the forum, but there are always people looking to make a fast buck by collecting any species they can get their hands on.

Well, ok, but I meant to observe and photograph in the wild not selling.

Just to clarify: Chinadog wasn't suggesting that YOU would be selling. The policy for this part of the forum doesn't allow anyone to post locations because everyone in the world could read about those locations, and someone out there might exploit that information.

You may be able to find some information online that would narrow the species' ranges to particular counties.

The best time to go looking would be in early spring when breeding starts. In Georgia, that might be as early as February.

Looking for Ambytsoma is a blast! I'm surprised Georgia Wildlife doesn't have county maps,
but this one from BioWeb might help you! It's for maculatum, I couldn't find one for other A. spp. Good luck if you're still going out :)

My apologies, I did not see the note about not posting maps. I can't see how to delete this, but maybe a mod can take it down.

Does the same rule apply to invasive species? What about Ambystoma Super hybrids that are causing more destruction to native species then a herper ever would?

  • AMurry24537:
    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

  • Kmia_13:
    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.
