Great photos Chris. Interesting to compare with mine....they are more or less at the same stage. Unfortunately I've had quite a few dissapear...I think cannibalism or perhaps food competition is to blame.

Looking good. Hard to believe theyll grow into marbled newts. How many are you left? They sure are growing slow right? Man I cant tell ya how slow mine seem to be going.

Mmmm, spaghetti! :frog: Since the blackworms are live food, you can leave some in there for snacking.

I got my group about the same time, maybe a couple weeks later. Many are morphing out right now. Here's a picture that Joe Sartore took while he was visiting our facility at Conservation Fisheries, Inc.

I'll take some pics of the morphs before too long.

Any morphs yet Chris? I found this little fella climbing the glass of the marm tank this morning.



And to give him some scale. I think that's about the equivalent size of a US quarter.

Congratulations Chris! It looks great, what a beautiful little morph. I´m waiting myself for one of my C.o to morph...it´s so exciting when they are aproaching it. But now the hard part starts. Best of lucks with them, be sure to post more pics of the beauties.

    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
