I would strictly advice against any mixing of species; there have been several stories and threads around here discussing this problem. Have a look at Species Mixing Disasters if not done already.
A frog being big enough not to get swallowed by an Axolotl (for instance African Clawed Toads) would readily be able to do some big damage to Axolotls.
Pet shops tend to do this all the time to save space and money on housing. Many times the animals don't interact due to bad husbandry, stress or overcrowding.
Housing frogs and axolotls together is a bad idea as someone will more than likely be attacked. There are also few fully aquatic frogs and many of those are chytrid carriers which may infect the axolotl. Most of the aquatic frogs are tropical and prefer higher temperatures than axolotls which means poor housing conditions for at least one animal.
I have my axolotyls in an outside pond and at this time of year the frogs go there to breed. NZ native frogs are rare but Australian bell frogs live here in the North Island. It's really nice to see them together but it is sad to think the axis would eat any eggs or tadpoles. I didn't realise frogs could hurt axis
Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol
Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?
@axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.
Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?
