I have only seen it on ebay. They want $25 shipping from Ohio. If you find it cheaper please let me know too. Good luck

Hi! Just joined after having bought a new baby axolotl. He/she is a leucistic my daughter named "Nebula". Anyways, completely new to this but a century ago when I was in University we got our supplies from Ward Scientific and they have daphnia cultures. I don't know if they are the right "kind" but shipping is not astronomic and prices are cheap especially if you are ok with them in a bag instead of a jar.

I have had great luck buying from aquabid.com under the live food section. There are almost always a couple offerings for daphnia along with a bunch of other small live food cultures.

I would highly recommend ordering daphnia from Rhonda. I've ordered the past two years. She sends a generous amount of daphnia and the green water starter is a huge plus. The trick is to have a large enough container to allow the daphnia to reproduce enough to meet your demand. I was able to raise way more than I needed in my parents garden pond.

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    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)
