I have a giant larvae living in an 'aqua composter' that has grown large gills and doesn't show any sign of color yet. Some of the others are developing their rough skin. I also set up a new tub as they are getting big, so I have split them into smaller groups.

The first one is out! This guy took to land yesterday. Since leaving its skin has gotten considerably rougher.

Thanks Herman! I actually just saw your fb msg regarding the shanjing eggs, must have gotten buried in birthday messages on Facebook apologies!


The first few have morphed. The first one to do so I left in the larvae tub as there was a lot of cork bark for it to roam. The next morning I found it dead, it seems to have drown upon re entering the water. Now as they morph I have been removing them into a bin of cork bark with a wet paper towel bottom, and haven't lost any since (touch wood). After they left the water they developed their characteristic head ridges.

The first 2 that left water have started to eat. After doing so they became a lot more active, they were like statues before. You can tell metamorphosing is a very stressful process for them, which is likely why there can be high mortality at morph. Out of 5 to morph I have only lost 1 so far, hoping the others pull through touch wood. They pretty much look like mini adults minus the orange warts which look to be developing slowly.

Excellent job so far ,responsibility is on you now to raise the young and breed the F1/2
I lost all mine when my mother inlaw cooked them sadly,adults are still here but don't want to breed regardless of conditions
so see if you can get your juvies to grow and breed.
can I ask was the only heating on your adult tank the lighting ?

Thank you! I am hoping I can raise you a male, I think I recall you were looking for one. Yes the only heat I had was the heat lamp, which was at one end of the tank. It was warming the land portion, I figure even in the summer the water is pretty cold especially in the morning, so the water stayed about 18-19 degrees. It can be hard to warm them without warming the water too much, the larger the water volume the easier it is to keep the water temp from changing as much.

I think you might be on to something ,with the cool water and warm land,I tried mine in the garden this summer ,the water was cool but the land never got warm enough (Scottish summer) .The animals did spend a lot of time in the water part but didn't eat much and the male hasn't come into condition. Can always try again next year

I had just remembered going herping in the summer on a sweltering day, and the water was almost ice cold and it was in the sun. In those shaded areas where they are from especially during typhoon season, warm winds sweep over but would be unlikely to cause a significant water temperature increase. I think warming up the land makes the temp difference between water and land even greater, which I think is something they would be reminded of every time they enter or leave the water. I wondering how long the babies will take to mature.

Posting an update of the babies, they all made it with exception of the first to morph. I rehomed some to other experienced tylototriton keepers in Canada in hopes of them having success once they are of age. I am also hoping being captive bred they will be easier to breed but it will be a while until iI find out. Their home is seeded with pinheads, springtails, dwarf white isopods and I also tong feed them occasional earth and wax worms. They just started to plump up recently.

  • AlexisJG:
    I have had my 2 axolotls since June 2020 and I had hoped they would mature the same gender but unfortunately they are not. I am currently on vacation and planned to separate them once I returned, my axolotls are currently being cared for by a friend who knows the basics to care for them properly. A melanoid and a leucistic. I had a feeling but didn't prioritize it enough and now I have many many eggs in the tank with both of my axolotls. I have zero experience with eggs and cannot really care for juvenile axolotls but I really DO NOT want to kill them. What should I do? Are my axolotls okay being in the same tank with them? would the eggs be okay all together in a tank by themselves? Where can I find someone to care for them and hatch them?I'm so stressed and worried I just want the best for them all.

  • axie owner:
    you are going to have to get a bucket and put the eggs in that. they can hatch anytime between 11 and 20 days. order in brine shrimp eggs and get your friend to watch a video on hatching them. make sure your friend does 100% water changes every day. keep the water around 64digres and make sure your friend sends daily updates on them. i found kitchen salt works for the brine shrimp eggs. hope this helps.

    Hi guys.. I might of made an error and need some advice. One of the hides in my tank is too small for my axie now, but I did not want to buy another hide because they are expensive, so I decided to DIY one. I used a Tupperware (cut into a little home) and glued rocks from outside and plants on it. The problem is, I washed the rocks with soap and hot water. I completely wasn’t thinking. When I washed them there was no soap residue that was visible on the rocks, and the rocks have been drying for 3 days on the container. So it has been 3 days since I washed them. I used aquarium safe silicone to glue them on. It was fully dry tonight so I decided to put it in my tank. I had it in for about 3 mins until I realized j had washed the rocks in soap, and I took it out immediately. Should I be worried??? I’m really freaking out, I don’t want anything to happen to my baby! I was truly not thinking. I also read that it was safe to use rocks from outside, but now I’m not sure? Can anyone help

    @Paige1warren, Since you took it out straight away it should be ok but I'd still be doing a big water change. When I was a teen, I took some rocks from outside, washed them (probably in soap) and put them in my turtle tank. He died a week or so later and I've never used any rocks from the garden since because you just don't know what's been on them, such as pesticide and I suppose the mineral composition of the rock comes in to play too. Letting them dry for a few days before adding them also would have helped so you should be fine

  • Toothpickthelotl:
    @Saturn, okay, thank you so much! Firstly, I’m so sorry about your turtle :(. My lotl seems to be fine, I haven’t noticed any changes or signs of destress. I do 25% weekly water changes (I have a fully cycled tank), but I will do a 50% change today. I hope that everything turns out fine. Axies are pretty good at showing they are not well or stressed so I’m hoping that I got the rocks out fast enough. Thank you again!

    Can't say if this is what's being referred to, but I had some ceramic tiles in an aquarium for a while. I used a silicone sealant to secure them to the bottom and to each other. It worked well for about 6 months, but eventually a little water got through my imperfect seal and started creating mold problems
