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.)

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.

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal

  • Elder_Axolotl:
    @Albi_the_axolotlt I would definitely make a thread about this, but before you panic try putting you axolotl in a tub where the water only goes about an inch above it, and then cool the water down SLOWLY, like a couple ice cubes at a time, to about 50 Deg F. sometimes this helps them pass gas, or even have a bowel movement. Just make sure the Temps from your current enclosure and the tub are within 4 degrees of each other and not higher than 65 Deg F. so you dont Temp shock your baby.

  • Albi_the_axolotlt:
    well I don't know how to make a thread and I am very thankful for your help but the real reason I am worried about is that it goes away and comes back constantly like its gets better today then tomorrow morning she is at the top of the tank floating on her side all bubbled up? I do put her in a container with just enough water to cover her back and it helped but it gets annoying and scary when it's consantly happening and I am worried I am doing something horrible wrong.
