Here's my perfect boy, his name is Ejderha! It's Turkish for "dragon", and I call him Edgy for short.
Based off of the people I've shown his picture so far, I've been told that he's a GFP/Wild type, but I would love more input!

Steve has moved in with Bucky and it seems to be going well :love:
Bucky is the dark wildtype with a missing gill, Steve is the copper with a cute freckle/beauty spot.
Also a funny photo of Steve showing a nice full belly.

Tulip is lovely! The reading on that thermometer is not great though! If your parents want the blinds open can you add a fan to the tank? Maybe find some posts about heat stress in axolotls and show them, maybe then they will realise it needs to stay cool and away from the sun.

Tell him he needs to do more research and to join Axolotl-aholics Facebook group and ask the thousands of owners and breeders on there.

My sweetest baby and first axolotl ever, Peepo!! :love: :love:
He's almost two inches now and has the biggest appetite I've ever seen. I don't know if he'll end up being a white albino or more on the golden side, but I'm excited to see! I love his iridophores so much!!

(Included the still pic as an attachment cuz it was way too big in the post...lol!)

he doesnt use facebook and believes that anything from it is a lie

he cleans her water while im away and make sure she eats. he just wont listen to me about the temperature and its frustrating. im just glad summer is over so it wont be so hot anymore

Apologies for the poor image quality, but these needs to be shared. Virginia is not good at hiding.

Point of clarification....it's a grainy picture, and with the light and the fact that she's chilling out her gill frills aren't apparent. Don't worry, she has lovely fluffy gills, it's just angles and lighting.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Paige1warren:
    Okay so what I found is lower pH can bring on the symptoms ur lil guy is having. Your pH isn’t too too low, but it is lower then recommended so it’s possible having him exposed to a low pH for an extended amount of time has caused him to be really stressed out and stopped eating. Is your tank with the sand still set up and running? And if so, what is the pH in that tank? I’m thinking a filtered tank might be the best for him, but still leave him in the tub until he seems to be improving. Could you send me a picture of the sand and of your little guy? I put my girl on sand when she was still fairly small and it is normally fine if the sand is fine.

    if the tank isn’t set up, that’s okay. I would recommend today going and getting an air stone to put in the tub that hes currently in. Creating more aeration in the water can increase pH. You can also add 1 teaspoon of baking soda very slowly for 5 gallons of water to help. I don’t know much about the baking soda thing and I’m not sure how completely safe it is. This might help explain it a little better How to adjust the pH in your aquarium

    if you have the API water test kit, check all the perimeters in the tank. We can check the cycling process with the perimeters. And I’m actually not sure how to upload a pic lololol I thought it would be easier but I tried it myself and now I’m confused! It says to attack a link, I’m not sure how that works

    Hey @Josiane ! I just responded to your post. Your little guy actually looks fairly decent for his size despite not eating well. I think it is stress from the environment

    Also I forgot to add to my response on ur thread, keep trying to feed him bloodworms and see if he will start to take them. If you get a turkey vaster you can suck up dethawed bloodworms and dangle them right infront of his nose, might get his interest.

    @Josiane An axolotl of your's size should be on a diet of chopped earthworms or live blackworms (if they're under 3"). Bloodworms and brine shrimp are not a sufficient diet.

    Unlike
  • madcaplaughs:
    @Josiane Based on the photo, I believe there is a chance your axolotl may have become impacted from ingesting sand. Axolotls under 5" should not be kept on substrate for this reason.

    Unlike
  • madcaplaughs:
    @Josiane The nearly diminished gill stalks are also indicative of poor water quality. You need to test your tap water's parameters using a liquid test kit (not strips! Those are inaccurate). The slime coat coming off may also be due to water quality or the water conditioner.

    Hey guys! Could anyone tell me like the span earth worms are good for once cut? I’m wondering if I can prepare worms for days in advance or no? I normally will cut the worm the day I feed it to my axie, but I really hate the cutting and was just wondering if I can do a few at a time so I have them already prepared. Do they lose nutritional value once cut?
