The first pic is of red dots and swelling and bluish discoloration that cropped up in one day i was feeding everyone last night and they were all just fine apart from the broken finger i guess it is? in the second pic and i know its hard to see but you can maybe just barely see the small lump on the dark ones back too please.. ive posted for the dark one about a week ago and i havent checked today but i haven't heard so much as a peep from any one someone please help me i dont know what to do for them ... they usually live in a 55 gal tank there are 2 white males and one dark male 4 or 5 years old i keep a heater in the tank thats set to about 73 or so this is the tank they have lived in for years the one with the discoloration is now in a kritter keeper obviously to keep it seperate from the others he was having a little difficulty swimming with the swollen leg but was doing alright considering

Replace the********* in the url with image shack . us with no spaces i couldn't get it to work..dont know why

Please use punctuation in your writing!

Photos from imageshack are blocked from being posted to this forum. The reason is that their software inserts advertising together with the link to the photo. It would be better to upload the photo directly from your computer.

I downloaded the images, then uploaded them from my computer. They are below.

If I were to take a guess, I'd say "redleg", just based on the appearance. This is something that most exotics vets DO know how to treat. I have no idea about the bump on the second one.

    I have a question, I’m looking into getting one or two Axolotls and I don’t know if I should just get one or get two. Planning to get them as eggs.

  • CrazyForLotls:
    @SunnyAxies, It honestly depends on how much space you have. Two axolotls in the same aquarium would need a minimum of 30 gallons. (at an adult size) If you end up with opposite genders, you would need two 20 gal tanks. Males and females can't be kept together since they will breed and overbreeding the female is harmful to her body. Another factor would be if you think both eggs would survive. Sometimes axolotls hatch with defects and either die or should be euthanized to prevent them from living an uncomfortable and/or stunted life. It's sad, but it's for the good of the animal.

    I made a huge error, I’m about to cry because I don’t know why I was so stupid. I decided to clean the sponge and other stuff in my filter while I left the filter running. (I took out the parts in the filter to swish around in dirty tank water). Bc I left the filter running, all the gross stuff at the bottom of the filter filled into my axolotl tank. My tank is like brown now. I was trying to unclog something in my filter cuz it wasn’t running right and idk why I left it on I literally don’t know. I tried to take a bunch of water out snd replace it with fresh water but it’s STILL brown.

    Hello! New caretaker of a paddletail who is supposedly 24, and seems to have been poorly cared for. Supposedly was fed earthworms or redworms, but every time I've pet-sat for her, she just chomped at the worm once or twice and left it, to be removed a day or two later. Now I have a bigger, clean tank and have been trying mainly frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp, thawed with spring water and fed with a dropper. She ignores bloodworms, goes for the brine shrimp eagerly, but seems to spit a lot out, and ignore most. I'm not sure I can make myself chop up worms (😳) but I want to help her. She also regurgitated an inch-long, seemingly stiff, straight, dried up bloodworm! I don't even know where that came from!!! All help appreciated. Thank you.

    Hello anyone that can help! I’m a breeder and was wondering how to make pellets as well as salmon pellets! I’ve seen some recipes around but they contain crickets which I thought were no good for axolotls because of the chitin. The amount taht I have devours 2 pounds of pellets in a week 😂 so any help would be great. There was another lin las well for two other pellets but I’m not sure if it lets me open it because I am in the Us?
