Hi Folks,
Anyone uses these external breeding boxes to raise larval?
i am looking at these external breeding boxes due to very limited space in my wine fridge.
i do have a little spare space on each shelves in the fridge as the exo-terra faunarium Large size width is only 30cm and the wine fridge is deeper it allows me to fit in these external breeding boxes behind or infront. at the same time these external breeding boxes are air driven so aeration for the larval is not an issue. however i need to modify the exo-terra faunarium cover lids to fit these external breeding boxes.
These external breeding boxes even largest size are quite small though about 11x5x6 inches
Do you think these external breeding boxes are workable for raising larval?
Thanks and cheers!

    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?
