So the live chat things in the bottom right corner of the screen was annoying me so I pressed the "X" button, at first it was relief but now I would like to have it back, anyone know how I do this...?

Usually its in the left hand corner and it says "more chats?" and you click on it and it bring up the chats for you to choose which one you want back.

But I am having a different problem. I haven't closed chat in a long time, not since a month ago or so, but now I don't see it at all. All I see is the one in the right bottom corner that says how many people are at chat. But it is a unusually small amount of people too, could that be part of it? I don't see "in the pond" or "amphibia on topic" or "all topics". They are all missing.

Weird and frustrating......

I don't see the chat at all today, normally there it is in my bottom right hand corner and you can log in there. I suspect there is a problem with it ... it is a tad temprental.

So is chat like not a thing anymore? Another option is to make an Xat chat room, I've seen those used for other forum and some blogs in the past.

I miss chat! PMing takes ages unless both users are on at the same time. I'd really like chat back!

What's happened to chat?

That is what we are trying to figure out. I have mostly adjusted to using PM though, but it is kind of hard to keep up with everybody. Plus like Jake previously stated, it is a lot slower.

I alerted John to the loss of chat. He looked into it and discovered that the company running that chat has folded. He's going to have to see if he can find a replacement but it's not something he can do in the next couple of days. Maybe later this week or before Christmas. Sorry about this.

I noticed that there is the option to enter a chat, but it never seems to be running. Is it because no one is online the time I log on?

Chat would definitely be easier to converse with more knowledgeable members rather than sifting through pages of threads to find a topic that is related to the question at hand. Also, I suspect it would become arduous (and possibly annoying) having to answer the same cycle (pardon the pun) of questions.

Man, what a sadness, first time on in a long time, was looking forward to it. Still remember the dark background, the brightly colored text, the overly zealous college age moderators who ruined any conversations they were a part of, and everybody else who made it worth the trouble anyway.

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?

    Does anyone know if aquacare general tonic is ok for axolotls as a treatment for bacterial or fungal infection?

    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)

    My three inch axolotl was having trouble pooping up to a few days ago. I wasn't feeding her as often because I was scared I would just add to her constipation. I fridged her until she pooped (twice), and then began to feed her around 6 bloodworms every other day. she's been pooping everyday now, but she's at that age where you can see through her stomach and I always see poop ready to come out but has not yet passed. I don't think she's constipated anymore, but I'm not sure and i don't want to over or underfeed her... any advice?

    @Lilith, fridging is not required for fungus treatment. Read my thread on treatment.

    Its probably not pooping because its hardly beign fed, it pooped in the fridge because the lower temp caused it to purge itself. If it stays constipated you can pm me

    Hi guys. Quick question. I have newly morphed eastern newt efts. They lost their gills but they still prefer the water. I have coconut fiber, moss, hidey holes and some food in the temporary habitat for them (waiting for the other newts to morph as well). But they still run back to the water. Is it the wrong substrate? Do they prefer something other than coconut fiber? I've been doing everything else properly (According to my research) but just wondering why they haven't ventured up. Have any ideas?
