Nice, Mr. Fancy-newts! Have you thought about setting up a separate tank for a few of the most stunning specimens and trying to breed them with each other? I know what you're thinking, like you really need another tank setup!
But seriously, you're the only one that could do this experiment! Do the most colorful ones have colorful offspring?
hehehe...I'd sure like to oblige you but that would contravene my noble principles and steadfast beliefs, beauty being only skin deep and in the eye of the beholder, what really counts being what's inside...and all that X:#"*$
But seriously, I really should establish a separate breeding tank for the five or so exceptionally striking C.e.p on my stud farm (though currently none are laying).
And perhaps the hybrid C.e.p eggs could be auctioned off one-by-one to the highest bidder, the proceeds donated to caudata.org? Then again, maybe I'll just opt to become an overnight millionaire considering the prices these beauties fetch here in Japan...
I'll try to post a pic soon of all five together.
On whether the offspring of heavily gold-flecked C.e.p tend to be more colorful than usual, I really don't know if that's the case but would assume it's likely.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
