Later today I will post the details of the 2009 Caudata.org Grant poll. Put simply, those who contributed to the Amphibian Ark Donations Drive, from December 2nd 2008 to January 2nd 2009, will be able to vote on which grant application will receive the money we raised. To be clear, only they will be able to vote in the poll. For transparency, all members will be able to see the grant application details, but as I said, only those who contributed to the grant will be able to vote. All grant voters will be informed by email in the next 24 hours.

If you are a grant voter, be advised that there are 17 Grant Applications for you to read. Most are somewhat technical in a scientific manner, so if you have any questions or are unsure about anything in any grant application, I urge you to post your question here and we will explain it. It's important that this process is carried out as transparently and fairly as possible, and this can only be accomplished if there is no confusion or misunderstanding among the voters.

Two final points about voting. Firstly, please keep in mind when you are assessing a grant application that our Grant specifies that we have "a strong preference for supporting projects that involve biologists from the species’ native country". Secondly, you may be acquainted with one or more of the grant applicants - please evaluate the applications based on the research propoal.

Thank you to Kevin Zippel for laying the groundwork for this poll.

One further issue: if you believe you should be eligible to vote due to a donation you made between December 2nd and January 2nd last, yet you do not receive our email within the next 24 hours, please notify me.

    Ooh, tiles of course. I was thinking of those ceramic rings/balls you can buy as filter medium, but tiles make more sense. Thanks

    Hi there, I am a new Axolotl lover & owner of two cuties! They are little over 6 months old now. I have a divider and decided to see how they would be together because they always tried to get to each other threw the border/wall.

    Hi guys, I was wondering if I possibly crashed my tanks cycle? I’ve had a cycling tank for months now, changing 25% water weekly. I never had any problem until a few days ago when I did a 50% water change. I did this because the tank was looking extra dirty for some reason and also I siphoned too much water out trying to vacuum the sand. I noticed since that water change, my axolotl has been hiding more, barely eating, and only moving from time to time. I checked the water perimeters and they are .25 ammonia, 0 nitrite and 10 nitrate. I normally have 0 ammonia, I haven’t had above 0 since I was first cycling the tank. Did I make an error or is this just a fluke? What should I do?

    Im worried about my lil girl, she’s normally fairly active and a pig when it comes to food. Should I tub her until I figure out the tank situation? Am I overreacting lol?

    Also, she is about a year old. Her tail is perfectly straight and her gills are perky (not curled forward). She’s looking perfectly fine, just acting weird

    Sorry one more thing, when I changed the water last I removed a few plastic plants that I realized were taking up too much room. Would the removal of the bacteria on the plants mess it up?

  • JoyJiang:
    Maybe, I’m not to sure. I’ve done lots of research when i got my baby axolot. Maybe she is just adjusting to the new tank?
