My dad bought me a pair of madagascar hissers yesterday a male and a female the male was eating yesterday and so did the female... i placed egg carton and newspaper but they hide in the egg carton ... it was inactive even it was in the shop ( they just placed a small amount of newspaper) , and yea when i took it home it was just staying in one place but can flip itself over..... so today i noticed it was inactive it was just on top of the egg crate for 3 hours already , attenae isnt moving.... i am misting their tank and provide lots of cotton balls with water... Whats wrong with them? Are they really inactive roaches?? it was night here already but it hasnt move on top of the egg crate..... are they still adapting to their new home and are they really inactive?? a few bites on food only degrees is 25 degree celsius, it was raining today and a humid weather ( cold and no rain) no sun came out so i guess the temp would be 18 degree celsius....25 degree celsius when there is sun. help pls!! it moves when i place it on my hand but when i place it in his tank it wasnt moving very much...

Just leave the poor thing alone Jerome...
They are nocturnal and prefer to hide from the light. You bothering it constantly will only cause stress and prevent the animal from adapting.

Have you checked any care sheets for those? I thought they needed a higher temperature than 25 degrees.....

    @AkemiYousei thanks so much. Will do. I have also given them a tea bath before, seems to work their gills are looking so much healthier, my golden albino is swimming around frantically trying to jump out, should i be worried? my wild type is fine

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!

    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help with our axy, she absolutely loves her food and we've notice tonight after her worms( that she ate in one mouthful) that she ue was struggling to get up to the top for air. She's never done this before, she usually goes up every 5-10 mins or so. She is 6 months old and seems very healthy. Could it be a problem with our water level or water quality or could she just be to full?
