Get rid of the gravel please or your axies will become ill and possibly die! :(

And what is your wildtype eating in the 3rd picture? Looks like a sucker fish of some sort, that shouldn't be in with axies at all either!

A few tips

-Get rid of the gravel-if swallowed it can cause impaction and death
-Not a good idea to use feeder fish unless you raise them yourself (guppies are pretty easy and are small) because they can pass all kinds of nasties to your axies or nip the crud out of the gills

The gravel is beautiful, looks like sweeties, maybe you should move it to a fish tank :) but yes unfortunately it has to go. :(

Haha i know i know i got rid of the gravel a long time ago :) umm shes eating a feeder and yes i do breed them myself so im sure theres nothing wrong with them. although im going to switch to a different kind of fish. maybe ruby red feeders.. hehe

Heres some more pics of my babys :3 They've been growing nicely ^^ i got them at just under an inch, one was smaller than the other, now the smaller one is at 1 inch, the other is at 1.3 hehe ive only had them for a few days so thats good for me xP

    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

    Hello I'm wondering if fridging axolotl is necessary when giving it a salt bath? My fridge is unpredictable it just changes from freezing temperature to melting by itself. And driving me crazy. So I would not be keen to put my axie in these because of the sudden temperature changes it may experience. Can I leave him in a clean dechlorinated water tub in some of the room? Would I then need to refrigerate the salt water ? Or would I just keep it in a same room temperature?! I have everything ready for him to get a salt bath but just wanted to check about this fridging before I do ( waited for approval to join the forum:)
