Here are photos I took today at the axolotl colony in Santa Fe. Two are photos of Elisheba's larva-rearing devices, and then photos of a golden albino and melanoid she had there.

it did take a time investment, but i expect it to pay off in water changes and feeding- i can tell exactly who has been fed and who hasn't, monitor growth/disease... and i expect these to last through multiple hatches. Thanks Jenny for posting the pics- they turned out pretty well!

you shouldnt really handle axies out of water but they are okay out of water for a while. i had an incident a few weeks back where (i think) my cats had knocked over the plastic tank on a shelf my small axie was being kept in and when one of my house mates got up in the morning he saw the tank and my small axie had crawled into a turned over paper bin which was on the floor. he was a bit disturbed but was fine a few hours later. not sure how long he had been there for but he was def out of water and hadnt died!

but im not incouraging you to take yours out.

If you look at the axies gills they are not flat against his/her head so she is most probably in water.

The axolotl shown "in-hand" was indeed completely under water at the time. He was being held in place against the glass (gently) so that I could get his picture.

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!

    Hi all I'm new here I'm just looking some advise on cycle witch is currently driving me insane . So we are week 8 I'm dosing daily with 4pp of amonia and for the last week has been dropping to zero witch I no is good. But my question is my nitrites are sitting at between 0.50 and 1.0 PM and nitrates are between 10 and 20 and neither of these seem to be dropping. I have done 2 40% water changes a few days ago and no change the only thing I can think of is I didnt use the seachem stability stuff which I have now ordered but surely that shouldn't have much difference this far into cycling
