I use it every time I do large water change. Like today, I did like a 50% water change, so I added 1 measured cup for mine. Now if I was just taking 2 gallons out instead of 10 like I did, I wouldn't have added any. Do not use it daily, it does not evaporate, it stays in the water and thus, if you use it too much, it will cause harm. So I would say no more than once a week but you can probably manage it twice a month. It really depend on the size of your tank.

Can you please post some photos of your axolotl? Some new ones, I want to see how they're doing. You're doing God's work by helping this axolotl out. The thing I am most concerned about are the gills. I don't know if they will grow back, I certainly hope so. I know it takes them like 3 months to regenerate missing limbs so in theory, your little guy should regrow his gill stalks.

But how are you? I know how stressful it can be and I know you're very far removed from the axolotl's homeland. If you need to talk, please feel free to message me. If you are having difficulty with any of my English or whatever, don't hesitate to use Turkish, I can probably piece it together. God, I hope so, that would be embarrassing if I couldn't...

Hang in there buddy! You're doing great by caring for your axolotl.

Evet! Senin adına sevindim. I am glad all is going well. I did some research here on the forums, I have read people saying that when they bought some of their axolotls, they were missing gill stalks and within a year, with perfect water, regular feeding, the gill stalks will grow back no problem.

Man, how bad was my Turkish, did I say that right? I apologize if I sound like a moron.

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

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
