I've had eggs on the plastic plants, the ornaments, the hides, the filter inlet, the airline pipe, the airstone itself (WTF?!) the floor, and I swear they would lay eggs on each other if they sat still for long enough. But not on the moss balls.
My moss ball is huge so they try and put in in their hides but it doesn't fit, always seems to be in front of a hide. They also steal strands of hornwort and frogbit to line their hides with. Its a daily struggle on my part since I want the plants to survive.
Moss balls make great filters! Just wring them out like a sponge, especially after just purchasing them, then hand roll them back into a nice shape and return to water. I couldn't believe the amount of gunk that mine had in them when I first got them! Some people even string them together and make a floating filter chain. When they get large, divide, and repeat the process. Works great for my tanks!:happy:
My axie's moss balls lasted a few days before it was in bits and only the plastic thing that holds the moss together was left. I'd bought my axie it as a toy he could shove around the place but he didn't seem impressed.
I ended up giving him a little ball which he seems to prefer. You'll see in the photos he liked to pose both standing one footed on the ball, and also leaning on it with his arm at a jaunty angle, like an old uncle about to tell you an amusing story from his youth...
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
