Re: Not seeing to many like these two

Do you have a better shot of the tail?

Dwarves with crinkle tail? I should hope not... Glad these ones have found a good home, though.

I think I see some deformed limbs as well. Must have been some genetic abnormalities that caused the mutation, maybe the result of inbreeding. Or possibly something stunted the development. Either way, they are certainly unique little cuties!

Ok now I am kinda of freaking out. They are pretty healthy and I adore them but the posts here make me think I have “mutants”. No offense of course! Tails are very crinkly! I will look to see if I can find a closer photo of their tails.

Nothing to be freaked out over, just looks like you have dwarf axies. I've never seen a crinkled tail naturally like that though!

In fact, I was looking at images on the web just now and I don't believe there are any other axies with wavy tails! You have one special axolotl!

I cant seem to upload pictures as I'm using my phone
im not an expert but id say watch how they behave, if the tail kinks are limiting movement or ability to swim those ones should be put down, the ones with deformities furthest from the torso might grow up ok but the one with a hard kink right where the tail begins may have issues with the lower legs and organs.

i would not allow these to breed but they might be ok as pets. if any of them seem to be struggling i do think it would be kind to humanly put them to sleep (freezer seems to be a common method).

  • AMurry24537:
    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

  • Kmia_13:
    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.
