A few minutes ago I wish you good luck with them and now I see that one has morphed today. Excellent. Congratulations!

This is amazing! Great set of pictures, and lovely video footage. I changed my Kweis tank today from a dry, terrestrial setup to a partly aquatic one, and the male was straight into the water. Hopefully they will decide to breed this year!

How long are they? They seem to be a little bit smaller than my juvies, when they became land invaders. Mine were 6 cm when they morphed. (of course it shouldn't be a problem if they are smaller: they will catch up later).

Unfortunately I'm the only one with succes breeding them in the Netherlands (I lost 2 out of 7).
I hope this year will bring good luck breeding them again, and not only for me :p

AW: Re: T. kweichowensis breeding.

Hey Joost,
during Spring and Autum my Kweichowensis are outside in the garden and before the Winter they were still Larvae in the water. So I took them into the basement during this long and cold winter. They are in 5° cold water and those 26 juveniles you saw at the picture morphed very small ( 3-4cm). It was very laboriously to feed them up. But now they are wonderful and there are still 40 in the water. Now the tank is heated and the larvaes prosper in the water round 7-8cm. So they might become landinvaders like yours with 6cm,
ummi

    Hi I recently rescued a lotl (i did weeks of research before rescuing) Hes mabey 5 or 6 years of age..the previous owner could not remember the exact age of him. I got him from her as he was or had been picked on by his tank mate another lotl who was bough with him from every younger age, I noticed one of his gills, a middle one at the end had split in two? And is slightly more floppy? He also appears or mabey I'm just over worried to mabey have lost some feathers, is that normal to lose some?...all levels in the tank are fine, but wondered if theres and advice anyone could give me as an experienced owner to a new one.

  • Axolotl Queen:
    @Lanalotl Sounds like the gills may have been nipped by the tank mate. If he is in his own tank and the parameters etc are all good, then he should grow them back and they should go back to full health and strength. However, depending on how old the injury is they may not fully grow back if they have been constantly nipped at.

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening? We just did a water change and after freaking out and whipping around the tank, an hour later they look like this. It won't let me send a pic. The edges of their gills are white and it looks like they have skin shedding off

    That sounds like severe skin damage. If you post a thread on the forum, you can attach pictures.

    It sounds like something went wrong with the water change, so this could be very dangerous. Did you use a dechlorinator? Could it be there are traces of chlorine or soap in the water? (Or for example, in the bucket you used?)

  • Murk:
    Normally, I would recommend taking them out of the tank asap and putting them in a tub with fresh water, but if there's something wrong with your tap water or dechlorinator, that might not help either. Do you have acces to bottled water or rain water?

    I think my axie is dying, he’s never had any issues before, I’ve had him 3 years, today I noticed some fluffy looking stuff coming from his genital area so I took him out of his tank and did a full tank clean to make sure the water wasn’t infected as I thought it was fungus and then I noticed he had a cut on his belly which was only small about 5 hours ago and now it’s spread to all of his belly, what do I do I’m freaking out

    Update about my axie, unfortunately he has died over night, he looked as if he was bruised allover his belly, his mucus layer had also started to come off.

    Hi I have 2 4in juveniles (I’ve had them about 2 weeks and they are doing well I think they’ve grown a little already honestly) but I am supposed to go on a 5-6 day vacation in October about 3-4 months from now. I am wondering how I should go about their care when I am gone. I thought about putting them in separate (fairly big) containers with live plants and/or bubblers with a fan in the dark and either fridging them (my last plan) but I am hoping to to either have someone I trust come feed them and turkey baste waste out or just leave them out and clean the containers before we leave and have someone come check on them once or twice. Does any of this sound like a good or bad idea? I want the best for them. All help appreciated :)
