I decided after I took everything out to clean their tank, I was gonna do some changes to their home.

Let me know what you think......

Will post all the pics in my profile.

I like it were did you get the rock cave? In the second pic. Did you have to make the plants, or did they come with the rocks on the bottom so they would stay down. I love the color of your axies colors were did you get them?

Hi Kclinton

I got the rock caves from my local pet store in the reptile section. The plants you see with the little rocks on the base were made that way. My local pet store had them and I was surprised that they were actually really cheap. My axies I got from a guy in Calif. I am waiting to find a wild one. With having a 55 gallon tank I am hoping to be able to keep at least 3 maybe 4 in there. I also have a 35 gallon tank all ready for when and if I have the pleasure of having babies. My local pet shop wants me to breed for them. But I wont agree to that unless they let me set up the tanks for them and they have to agree to give the flyer I am making with the CORRECT way to take care of them to everyone that purchases one. All the other rocks in the tank I got from the lake here, boiled them for several hours to make sure there was nothing toxic on them.

I have a bad habit of rearranging my rooms in my house and I guess that habit has carried over to my axies home. Usually every couple months I change things around a bit. They are sooooo spoiled. Ori, my white one, is my fav. he/she comes to the front of the tank when I walk up and always has a smile on his/her face. Pira, my golden, is huge!!! And a brute!! They were both hatched out of small batch, so I am surprised how much bigger Pira is. But I love them both!!

It's great to see how much your two have grown! How old are they now? How long are they? They certainly look healthy and happy! I'm the same with my four foot tank, always re-arranging when I do a good clean up! *smiles* Kerry.

The new tank set up looks great Terri and the bubs have grown so much!

I try not to play favorites with my axies, but I must admit that as ugly as he is my Vader will always be closest to my heart... :eek:

I have enormous respect for plastic plants that are cheap and have solid foundations strong enough to withstand a charging axolotl. ;)

Hi Kerry

My babies were hatched in mid Feb. Pira is about 7 inches now and Ori is a bit smaller. They certainly keep me company.

I can not get over how fast they grow. And they have developed their own little personalities. And I love my plastic plants too. Not many real plants you can get that would survive in a axies tank that are so colorful lol

    @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.
