So a weird thing is going on. My two axos laid eggs back in June, and I had to put the female in a tub so she could lay the rest of her eggs and recover in peace. I introduced them back together a month ago (albeit separated by a plexiglass barrier), but I've been noticing that she's been laying eggs periodically over the last few weeks. The batches aren't huge (maybe 6 or 10 at a time) but I'm a little worried that she keeps popping them out periodically. She did this once when she was alone in her tub maybe a month after she laid her first batch as well.

I'm guessing this isn't normal after she laid 150+ eggs back in June. Does anyone know what's going on? Like I mentioned before, there's now a plexiglass divider between the two of them with some holes in it for water flow. However I am going to silicone a plastic mesh over the holes in case they're forcing spermataphores through the tiny holes somehow.

TL;DR: Axolotl laid eggs back in June, but she still lays small clutches here and there even after she's been separated from the male. What's going on?

    Hey guys, I suppose this is a foolish question, but will my long-toed salamanders over-eat resulting in obesity?

    what are thoughts on using crushed coral or tufa rocks for resining the ph level in my tank? I have the seachem ph alert and it’s reading 5.4

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
