ok guys I need help I rescued a axie about 2 weeks ago. she has been super neglected for 2 years... and we have been feeding and feeding her. but i haven't seen any poo from her at all.... could be it that she is just to weak for a poo packet and it just comes out in liquid and dissolves in the water?

i need help with trying to figure out stuff we have tried refrigerating her but that doesn't seem to help... does anyone got any ideas? I'm a vet tech in training but I'm not sure what to do for her

I find my really neglected surrenders can take a long time to start pooping.

I always ensure I am feeding high fat foods to keep things moving and lubed up.

ya i read somthing about that online as well, but she's super super active so that's good and she's always eager to eat ( even wagging her tail when she does eat)

but she won't open her mouth like at all so it's really hard to feed her, she rreeeaaallly rrrreeeaaalllyyy loves food i might have to get a tiny rubber strange to gently pry her mouth open to see if that helps or not.... with her feeding. is that a good idea? or is there something else I can try? I don't want to stress her out by force-feeding her if i don't have to

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
