Oh Wendy, she is positively beautiful! She's grown so much and those gills are so long and lush! :D

Completely understand the addiction! Thanks for updating, amazing how fast they grow.

Thank you Shannon. Yes its amazing how much she has grown and her gills are fantastic. I remember when we first got her and she had little gills, and I use to look at the pics on this forum and think crikey i hope Mo Mo has gills like the ones I was looking at - and now she has :D

Hi Eric

I brought the java moss already attached to the driftwood. It is attached by fishing line, you can do it yourself but I was to lazy to attempt it so brought it already done. Mo Mo loves playing on the driftwood.

Yeah, I actually have java fern on some driftwood, and it is pretty well attached, but it is now growing wildly up towards the light, and I'm not sure what I am going to do to keep the java moss from getting too long and out of control

Thank you for your replies. She is such a character when i have hoover out she follows round her tank watching me. As soon as my daughter gets up or comes in from college she comes straight over to the front of the tank to look for her.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
