Maybe you should get someone just to suck the left over food and poop out with a turkey baster while your gone. So you don't have a huge build up. Make sure its someone that you can trust if you decide to do it.

i always feed them and suck out the leftovers after they feed. they usually leave nothing behind.

I hope (s)he makes it. Love the feeding pictures they are great. I think everyone enjoys the pictures, I doubt you could post to many. It is great to flip to your thread to Dan's thread to watch the progress. Best of luck to you. Keep posting (with pictures).

I had received eggs from Jenn and being I am a little superstitious I have waited to post.
Tried some pics but not quite as inventive as you are(great idea by the way)
I have been keeping up with your posts and they have helped me greatly. I never counted how many eggs I had but I have 22 larva a little behind yours. They now have front legs. Don't worry about too many pics they are great.
good luck with those remaining ones you have

They look bigger and bigger each time you post, they look great! The improved setup looks good too.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    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

    Unlike
  • 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
