Hello all,

Frist post but have been lurking for a while...

Ok on to my question. Living in the northwest, what do you think about feeding my new friends slugs,,,, yep slugs? I've had them for about 6 months and they are doing well on worms and feeder guppies..

Hi,
I occasionally feed my guys slugs..and they seem to enjoy the change from worms. But do watch out for the escapees :rolleyes:

Slugs can be host to parasites than can be carried over to axolotls. They make a fine food though and if you breed them yourself, they will not give their parasites to the young, which can be fed with confidence.
