After 2 months away from my former set-ups and all the hobby stuff i left I returned to my home.
One day before I left, In 14th September I made a huge terrestrial (65 land and 35% water) tank in witch I released some of the morphs I had not been able to sale by then. Yesterday, I had the pleasing surprise to meet a enormous marmoratus advanced juvenile around 8,5cm in length from my breeding's. Also a 4cm Cynops pyrrohgaster, not as fat as the marm was, but truly more colourful than they were in September. Maybe they are more but these were the only ones i was able to find. Pretty awesome photography targets I most say, kept me busy for a hole afternoon of shooting and editing. I´ll later post some of the tank it self.
Cheers!

Thanks for the input. Sadly I couldn't get the camera in time (night was faster). So i might "present" the tank tomorrow.

Opacum: I´m using several cameras and lenses. For these pics I used Canon Rebel EOS 400D + Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM.

Cheers,

    My axolotls were doing fine until the cycle int heir tank crashed. I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?

    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    @AkemiYousei thanks so much. Will do. I have also given them a tea bath before, seems to work their gills are looking so much healthier, my golden albino is swimming around frantically trying to jump out, should i be worried? my wild type is fine

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!

    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help with our axy, she absolutely loves her food and we've notice tonight after her worms( that she ate in one mouthful) that she ue was struggling to get up to the top for air. She's never done this before, she usually goes up every 5-10 mins or so. She is 6 months old and seems very healthy. Could it be a problem with our water level or water quality or could she just be to full?
