Paolo,
My M. stelzneri usually spawn within about 24 hrs. or not at all. Usually the males will stay on 3-4 days even if no eggs are laid though. The latest I have had them spawn is 36 hours or so after originating amplexus and most of the time its sooner.

FOr feeding the babies, has anyone though of buying some mites?
YOu can by various predatory mites, normally to control either spider mites or fungas gnat.
I bought some hypoaspis mites in an attempt to rid my house geckos of some red gecko mite, although it didnt work (i eventually got rid of them by picking them off by hand!)
ANyway, i had to oder these hypoaspis mites, they costed me about 15 pounds, and i got more than 10000 of these 0.5mm mites.

Just an idea

Ed,
That depends on the price

, I don't have a lot of spare cash at the moment. However if they aren't to much I might be able to scrape together enough. Please e-mail me prices and details and we can talk about it. Thanks for letting me know.

Ajj,
leaf litter mites are the only mites I have used but it sounds promising. Were did you get the mites and how much were they?

The froglets are a lot easier to feed now, all are feeding on normal D. melanogaster and most on D hydei as well. They will be big enough to sell or trade before long.

Does anyone know of anyone still keeping or having success with these anymore? It seems they've just about dissapeared from the hobby. Its quite sad since apparently they were imported in large numbers previously.

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add

    Hello I'm wondering if fridging axolotl is necessary when giving it a salt bath? My fridge is unpredictable it just changes from freezing temperature to melting by itself. And driving me crazy. So I would not be keen to put my axie in these because of the sudden temperature changes it may experience. Can I leave him in a clean dechlorinated water tub in some of the room? Would I then need to refrigerate the salt water ? Or would I just keep it in a same room temperature?! I have everything ready for him to get a salt bath but just wanted to check about this fridging before I do ( waited for approval to join the forum:)
