hi to everybody, this project that I am realizing is for mine 3 bombines orientalis, the principal purpose, studying their behavior in captivity, the tub asks for half emerged zone and half water. you thing thought of it?
the materials from me used are POLYSTYRENE, heat glue and water paintings.
I won't use acrylic silicon, because I have had negative experiences in precedence. Then I have used a system of ago the structure in three pieces, and to insert them among them.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
