Sorry about the bad photos. But I have to show off this year's babies: N. strauchii and N. kaiseri. The kaiseri are being raised from someone else's eggs, I have no adults.

Some of the strauchii larvae this year are lighter colored, as the one in the foreground. I expect they will all turn out with the usual color, though.

Gorgeous animals, Jen! I had no idea that you kept N. kaiseri. Did they prove difficult to cycle for breeding? Are they just plain difficult?

The strauchii hatched around the end of March or early April, and they are around 1 to 1.5 inches. The kaiseri hatched March 10-14, and they are at least 2 inches and beginning to show the characteristic kaiseri colors.

I don't have any kaiseri adults, Abrahm. Someone else's eggs found their way to my door. But from what I hear, they aren't difficult to cycle; unlike strauchii, they don't even need to get particularly cold.

Thanks for the positive comments, though I don't think the photos are worth much praise, haha.

    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
