This product is also marketed for use with aquatic frogs and newts. I have been using Omega One brand fish foods for the last several years because there tends to be less use of fillers and more of the main ingredient when compared to other brands on the market. Salmon and cod are listed as the main ingredients in the turtle sticks. The size and shape of the "sticks" are similar to Tetra brand Reptomin. Last evening I offered presoaked sticks via forceps to all of my caudates that will accept food in this manner and overall they all seemed to accept them enthusiastically, even more so than Reptomin. I am thinking that perhaps it is the smell. As a side note, out of curiosity I offered some to my leopard geckos and all of those individuals took them as well. I took the leftover sticks and compressed them into a ball and fed this to the pyxie frog, which will eat anything.

Wow...did you offer the sticks to the leopard geckos on forceps? I wonder if perhaps they will have prepared leopard gecko food on the market sometime...or has that been done already.

I think that there is/was a frozen prepared leopard gecko food on the market, at least at one time. I did offer the food on forceps and was really surprised that the lizards were so enthusiastic about it. I have to emphasize however that I feed my leopard geckos live insects most all of the time. This food is fish based so it is not something that I will offer them very frequently. Still though, I suppose that it is nice to have around in a pinch.

Where can I find them? Sounds like I would love to have these around for my three C. Orientalis' and occasionally for my bearded dragon, though I don't know if he would actually eat it. I figure the C. Orientalis' would..at least 2 out of 3...they will eat "newt pellets" if the mood strikes them. I would be very surprised and delighted if the picky one ate it.:happy:

Thank you,
Critter Mom

    @lvlyvoa, good to hear, np. They love nightcrawlers and worms if you have access to them, they're the healthiest thing they can eat since they're a complete prey

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.

    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!
