I'm writing down a summary of my mudpuppies success so far. Thought you guys might be interested in a documented article from hatching to adult hood. This is a rough copy. Tell me what you guys think?

Late July-Early August
3 eggs collected
http://youtu.be/HEnUGCHoehI
Set eggs in Small clear plastic container with holes in lid 3 cm hight, 4 cm width
one hatched on site
2 hatched 3 weeks later
Larvae where placed in a Small plastic critter cage/cricket keeper like container with a bubble wand stone. Water was 4 cm high due to food intake. Turned off bubble stone 'cuz they where getting air pockets in the chest area making them surface bound.
Fry where fed mini powder fish fry food twice a day

Water was changed once daily
Morphed to juvie stage in 1 month and 2 weeks after hatching.
Morphed juveniles where fed frozen bloodworms once a day or everyother day. Raised the water hight to 10 cm to encourage hunting instincts and to get their legs moving.

In the video that person totally vandalized the nest and scared away the guardian mother. Sorry but I didn't enjoy the video.

    I just looked it up to see if I can find it again. It’s actually a hyGROmeter and temperature. Which measures the dew point. Here is the difference between due point and humidity. https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidityYou can calculate Th relative

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

    Hey, does anyone know if hot glue is fine to glue rocks together?

  • MVM1991:
    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings

    hello, I am currently tubbing my axolotl due to cycling the tank. I have read different answers on how many times to do a 100% water change a day when tubbing. Some say once and some say twice. I just want to actually ask and get answers for myself. Thank

  • Murk:
    As often as you need to keep the water clean! Since you´re cycling, I assume you have a test kit. Just test a few times to see how long it takes for your ammonia to go up, and as soon as it does, change the water.

  • Kwags:
    Yes,I have the master test kit. Thank you! So just test the water in the tub that my axolotl is in now to gauge off of for changing?

  • Murk:
    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean
