6 gravid females ambling along the stream. I met them during sunny day so finally didn`t need any flash.

Never "ordinary." New desktop background it is! Thanks for sharing!

Of course in this case, it is ordinary for a fire sal to be gorgeous, so i'll let it pass xD

Hi,
photos of that place from 2014\26\07. I found a few sal larvae in the stream and quite a bunch of predator`s larvae (Cordulegaster bidentata)

    @MadamePirateOwl Fridging is best left to life-or-death situations, and salt baths are unnecessarily harsh, stressful, and abrasive. I'd suggest doing tea baths instead (using caffeinated black tea, where the only ingredient is black tea).

    so no idea what the goop is?

    Hard to tell without a photo, but might be algae or fungus floating. Water changes will take care of that.

    It definitely came from the axolotl. Looked to be mixed into poo the first time. Can I post the photos here?

    The second image was how it looked the first time, it was mixed with some other poop like stuff. after that its been small and without the poopy stuff

    The second photo looks reminiscent of partially-digested worms, though I've never seen anything like that. Have you checked your parameters lately?

    I use Prime to dechlorinate the water, which was recommend by the girl I got them from

  • madcaplaughs:
    For now I'd tub the axolotl and do daily 100% water changes until you're able to test your parameters

  • madcaplaughs:
    I'd also recommend ordering a liquid test kit such as the API Freshwater Master Test Kit since strips are generally unreliable and inaccurate.
