That's a lovely looking White's you have there. It's a pleasant surprise to see one that actually looks normal like yours instead of obese.

Thank you! While he still has some growing to do, I do monitor his eating pretty carefully so it's nice of you to say so.

Nice! Do you have pictures? I love the look of these guys as they get more mature, they really are a great little creature.
Also, Godric's gotten into the habit of croaking at me when I'm boiling water, it's pretty cute!

Yeah, here she is. She had a sister for awhile, but she died a few years ago.
That is super cute that yours croaks, it must be a male. :)

I love it when my guys start croaking! Mine will start up anytime I am using my Dremel power tool or hammering something.

Do you have any new pictures of Godric?

Guess I could add a picture of one of mine as well.:D

I love the pictures! The frog on the Christmas tree is hilarious! Thanks guys!
I was actually pretty excited when I first heard Godric start croaking as I was hoping for a male (thus the name) :)
I'm hoping to spend some time updating pictures of over the holidays. I'm also upgrading his habitat so I'll have pictures of that as well.

Thanks again everyone!

Hey ttamra,
Have you tried croaking at your frog? Some nights when I spray my frogs, I give a little "Riiiibbbbbuuuutttt" And they get all worked up! And it turns into a frog storm of sounds.
I also heard that both sexes can call. Can anyone else dispute/support this claim?

Females will make noises now and then, but it is not a call. It also isn't something that you can "turn on" for lack of a better explanation. My girls would make chitter noises now and again, but that is about all.

Anything you can tell me about them? Tips? :)

They're really awesome animals to keep! Good starter frogs too.
Have you kept any frogs/amphibians before? What sort of stuff do you have already for your frog?

    Yeah his gills is kinda small and it can be caused by nitrate level, I am taking care of it atm, I am worried about his weight, is he only overfed or are there any kinds of problems there ?

  • MVM1991:
    Well, again, I'm no expert. But I did just read axolotls are supposed to have a body about as wide as their head. The gills I'd say are the biggest problem, which could reduce oxygen intake, which could make a whole mess of problems.

    Hello, I am a new owner of a 3 month old axolotl, and although I have done a lot of research on axolotls, I can barely find any for babies. If anyone can help me with these questions, I would be super happy. How many hours do baby axolotls tend to sleep per day? How many times should I feed it and what would be considered too much (it's current diet is freeze-dried brine shrimp and blood worms, and I currently feed it around 3 bloodworms since they are not that big)? How many times a week should I change the water and how? I have a good filter and use Prime as my conditioner to remove the chlorine and other chemicals, but I still need to figure out how to deal with ammonia and such in the water. How do I clean it's waste (should I use a dropper to easily pick it up)? I need a better cooling system because currently I use ice packs on the side of the tank and I make sure to angle my ac so that it hits the tank.

    I also leave the lid open during the day so that evaporation can cool down my tank. I want to buy a fan, but since winter is coming I won't have to buy one yet. Lastly, what water testers are effective and affordable for a broke student like myself? Please, if anyone has any advice I will love to hear it. I care for this creature too much at this point, but I have no one to help me with caring for it other than the internet :,)

    Hi LauraLobster I am a new owner of axolotls myself and have been getting advice from things like this, I feed mine twice a day on blackworms and brine shrimp blood worms are more of a treat food, a question on where you are keeping you axolotl are you keeping it in the main tank or in a tub also if in the tank did you cycle it first? and if not i suggest tubing it until the tank it cycled, mine are still tubed since I was given bad advice by the shop people about cycling my tank and am still in the process of cycling it. I use pipettes to clean up the mess of my axolotls. I use the API mater test kit for freshwater tanks I am also a student and had to look around to find it the cheapest I could.

    Hi LauraLobster, like you I got my first ever Axolotl back in July. Iv found that he has enjoyed and eaten red wigglers well. They are a good source of protein and help provide the nutrients a young lotl needs to grow up big and strong. You will probably need to break it up into smaller pieces until they get bigger but they are what I have primarily fed my buddy since I got him. He’s actually so picky that he won’t even eat his pellets anymore and will hold out till he gets his favorite wormy.
