Hi guys! Im new with axie's and was wondering if anybody can share some tips to give my LOTL girl (little girl.sorry for the pun) going back to topic, i have a golden albino around 7 inches (not sure how many months she is. Would really help if somebody can give her age too :D) got her 3 days ago from a breeder out of town, and she has not eaten yet or maybe she's eating without me seeing because i dropped a ball of bloodworms. (Its still there but it got smaller, maybe the worms scattered out or die)


only factor i can think of that may be relevant to her not yet eating is that she's still stressed from our drive home because we were caught in traffic jam that took us a long 7hr drive home while she was in her plastic bag. Her gills isn't curled forward and the tail isn't curled at the tip too. Any opinions guys? Thanks in advance! I've been really fascinated by these little critters ever since i was a lad and could not resist when i saw a breeder nearby. Did my research but i still wanna learn from the experience of others :)


(I attached pics of her too, i know the tank is small. The breeder gave her to early amd my 75 gal hasn't arrive yet.)

It could be because of that but you could feed it a feeder fish to see if it eats it but feeders can have parasites but if you quarantine them they will be fine

I tried feeding her one of my betta fry runts and ahe didn't hunt them down. I removed them already. Should i try a dead one? I tried pellets too but she just bop them with her snout and looks away.

She needs to eat earthworms or nightcrawlers. Fish can host parasites I really wouldn't risk it.

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    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

Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
