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

I agree. I changed the forums similar to what you suggest.

Picture Glossary of Various Illnesses
Is it possible to set up a glossary of pictures of illnesses?
Just an idea.



Though that was a good idea
Even one on how to safely send animals? as i have seen quite a few posts asking how? even putting it as another sub under the sale, giveaway or trade might be an idea?

I've had an idea rolling around in my head. In the extremely brief time I've been here I've seen a lot of threads questioning about the phenotype or sex of an axolotl. Perhaps their could be a gender and coloration subforum? Or even a sticky for each? This way all of the questions would be collaborated and the information would be a little more available for all members.

It could even include discussion of genetics where members could post what their breeding crosses produced.

It's not absolutely necessary, I was just thinking about it and it's something I would really like to see. As for the idea of a sexing sticky I would be willing to compile pictures to give good examples of how to sex your axolotl. I would volunteer to make a coloration one as well, but I am colorblind!

Let me know what you guys think!

Not a topic so much, more of a feature:
A custom google map of global axolotl and caudata vets as well as private breeders and shops.

I'd be more than happy to help in making the map if people can help build up a database

It still seems like there is a main section you can post in and subsections. Ideally you would only have the subsections or no subsections at all. I didn't know where to post (I'm new) and I still don't if I have a general question. I chose the main forum because of the higher number of views but it would have been just as relevant in the general discussion subforum. It's like having a general discussion subforum in the main general discussion forum.

I think equipment recommendations (things like chillers, filters, hides, etc.) could be really helpful, especially for new axolotl owners.

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!

    Hi all I'm new here I'm just looking some advise on cycle witch is currently driving me insane . So we are week 8 I'm dosing daily with 4pp of amonia and for the last week has been dropping to zero witch I no is good. But my question is my nitrites are sitting at between 0.50 and 1.0 PM and nitrates are between 10 and 20 and neither of these seem to be dropping. I have done 2 40% water changes a few days ago and no change the only thing I can think of is I didnt use the seachem stability stuff which I have now ordered but surely that shouldn't have much difference this far into cycling

  • ytz13513:
    Dropping ammonia with rising nitrate and nitrite is good. It means the nitrifying bacteria is working. You just have to remove the nitrate from the water doing water changes. The level of nitrates is high and the nitrate is also high. The nitrite will be converted to nitrate using the beneficial bacteria and you can add them using quick start or allowing them to naturally grow in the tank. The latter option will take longer. The nitrate can be used by plants, so live plants can decrease the levels, but I would do a water change to get the nitrate at a level that is lower than 5 ppm. 5ppm of nitrate is natural and a good place.
