I am getting a het. Lucy and Lucy next week, tank is all set up and ready to go but I need some ideas for plant placements! Could you please post pictures of your set ups? I notice there is something like this going for Axolotls for nothing for these guys! I look forward to seeing everyone's set ups!

Not the greatest snapshot but you get the idea. :) About 50 gallons water volume, lots of plants and hiding places. I do have a few fish, snails and shrimp as clean-up crew and nobody bothers anybody else. There are three female young adult P. waltl, all about 7-8" long.

Resurrecting this thread which I see has some old broken links; here's a current photo of my 50-gallon P. waltl planted tank. (The wood is resin but plants and moss are real.) It's been established for over 3 years and houses three females, one wild-type and two leucistic. Shown here is Gussy, a little over 8" long.

Hi, I was wondering what you have on the bottom of your tank. I'm trying to figure out substrate for plants at the bottom of mine. Thanks for any info, K

    @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

    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!
