Hey Gang,
For those of you who had a blast at IAD, and those of you who missed out a new opportunity awaits you. August 5th and 6th is the 5th Annual Northwest Frog Fest in Gig Harbor, WA. Ask those who went last year but it is a fun time, and a great opportunity to meet and speak to some talented froggers from around the country. Friday August 5th will be a double speaker night. First we will have Ed Smith of the National Zoo, and Justin Yeager fresh from Ecuador and Columbia to follow. Per usuall drinks, food, and socializing afterwards.

August 6th at 9:00 am will be the frog show. I say frog show because there aren't any newt or salamander vendors, where are you guys? This is once again a captive bred animal show but we will have a quite a bit of good hobby related merchandise for sale. Lots of quality frogs, tinc group frogs, F1 pumilios, lots of thumbnail frogs, and tree frogs as well. There will be no shortage of plants, terrarium supplies, feeder insects, books, and art. Everyone is invited, and highly encouraged to attend. Advertising for this show has commenced via the web, vendor flyers, word of mouth and at many pet and plant stores along the west coast. We have gotten many calls and e-mails already about the show and it should be our best one yet. There are a few vendor tables still available but they are going faster than last year and we sold out. For more info on the show check us out at www.northwestfrogfest.com I cannot stress enough what a good time we had last year, ask some of the people who have been to previous shows. There are also lots of cheap flights and great summer deals to be had on the web so look around. Call us with questions, and lets expand our amphibian collections!!!
If you miss this show you better be dead or in jail.

I'd like to go, but Sacramento to Gig Harbor is a long drive. I'll try my best, regardless. Guess it just depends on my cash situation during that time.

    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
