If you have any suggestions for subtopics not present in this part of the forum right now, post them to this thread with the suggested name, description and why you think they deserve their own subtopic.

Vets!

It dawned on me last week (when the stinky cats were being vacinated) that I should find a vet who knows about Axolotl for that just in case situation. My vets were not to sure of anyone in this area who could reliably treat them. Maybe people on the site could recomend vets who specialises in amphibians?

I agree. A vet reference section would be a life saver for many axie owners. I think this topic should have vets that are good. And vets that arent. EG. giving you wrong medicine that hurt axies. I think there should be a name and shame and a best vet section. Both under one sub fourm heading. :D

Maybe a rant section on bad pet shop exepriences or comings across axolotls being subject to poor living conditions, maybe rescue stories can be posted here as well.


And introductions area where people post pictures of new axies?

i dunno just some ideas really.

Maybe a "colour morph" section, or something to that affect? I've noticed people posting in other sections asking about colour ratio of offspring. Sometimes people get confused on the topic.

I've been lurking on the cornsnake.com forum lately, and they have lots of subforums that might inspire you if you have a look. Also the cornsnakesource.com forum has lots of neat subforums.

OK based on what you've suggested I am thinking the following:

Vet Testimonials/Recommendations
Axie Iintroductions
Colour Morph/Type Discussion
Bad Experiences (I can't think of a better name for somewhere to talk about pet stores and such?)

Oh! I thought that was just an axolotl subforum, I didn't know it was for other species.

Oh! I didn't even notice that this thread was in the Axolotl Forum. I thought it was general. That's what happens when you access by "New Messages -- Last Day" rather than the main menu! Sorry.

Hehe. So you want one elsewhere? I thought that sort of thing was covered by the species topics?

Seeing's as this is the topic thats currently plaguing me and prompted me to join here... What about a "Feeding" sub-topic/sub-category? I'm only new to this forum, so I may have missed it, if this is the case, my apologies.:eek:

Or do feeding questions no matter how new to the hobby you are, all just go in the "advanced amphibian" sub-forum of Feeding etc or something? I posted it in the beginner section, as that is what I am... :confused: Sorry, I get lost on this forum pretty easily, as like I said, I'm new, and don't remember so easily where I saw things etc... So forgive me if I post in the wrong section or I post something that is already a topic/thread in a different section, but I do try and search to see if its already been posted previously, just maybe some of my searches are too specific and dont include all of the sub-forums etc... Just takes getting use to the different set up and system of this forum I spose...? I'm much more confident in using and finding my way around other forums :D

We have an entire section of the forum devoted to food and everything to do with it. Thanks for the suggestion though.

the open section where this stickied thread is located in a little confusing. i think it's a little more intuitive to have all these threads moved into 'Axolotl Free for all'.

- rename 'axolotl free for all' to 'General discussion'

- add a sticky in general discussion about how to get started in the axolotl hobby

- reorganize the subforums:
- general discussion
- breeding
- tank set-ups
- sick axolotl
- axolotl gallery

  • FragileCorpse:
    So, how often do I have to change the soil in my yellow spotteds terrarium? The soil looks fine, he stays under his rock all the time, so should I maybe only change put the soil from udner the rock? Or do I change it all out cuz its all stayed moist and I dont wnat it it mold kinda deal? Its been around 40 days with the same soil. It looks and smells completely fine though. I dont know what salamander poop even looks like, but Im not even finding any. I put pill bugs in his cage for him and they disappear, theyre not burrowing, so he MUST be eating them. What am I looking out for when the soil needs to be changed? Clearly the people whos aid they were coming to seize my salamander have forgotten and arent coming back.
