Audrey, thats great! So what sort of "priming" did you do prior to them breeding? If I recall, you left them in natural light last time, right? What are your temps?

Great work Audrey!

It's good to see a native species being bred by a native person, a lot of people have these newts in their care, but very few are successful like this.

Keep it up!

Well actually this time I did no prepping at all. I actually moved them into my newly constructed basement where the temps are considerably lower but there is little to no sunlight. They have just continually mated off and on since this summer when she laid her last round of eggs. I have no idea what it is that is making them breed. I just figure they like each other!

this is just a fun shot of one of the juvies, but it shows how intense their eyes are!

    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

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

  • Asmold1:
    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
