Dweeby felt like posing today.


Oh, and I finally managed to grab a pic of one of my fish:

This is a Grondel (in English it's called a Gudgeon I think)
Don't worry. They were in quarantine tank for quite a while before I placed them in the main tank. They have no diseases or parasites or anything. They are large enough to not get eaten (and might I say, blindingly fast!), and it's not in their nature to try and attack axies (or their gills). They are bottom feeders and eat pretty much anything axies will. This is a great boon; they eat up any leftovers you might not have cleaned up after feeding time.

They are very shy however; don't expect to see them merrily swimming around like a goldfish. They just hide and lay low.

Wow, I've never seen a wild type like that. o_o

I know! He is beautiful! I use to not like wild type color untill the breeder convinced me she had a beautiful wild type so i was like sure why not! I am glad she convinced me!
His colors are so distinct. And the green is beautiful. And he has silver splotches all over him.

It appears that Mulders' stomach is more powerful than his/her shyness :D
Scully scuttled over to see why she/he wasn't getting all the attention, or food :p

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal

  • Elder_Axolotl:
    @Albi_the_axolotlt I would definitely make a thread about this, but before you panic try putting you axolotl in a tub where the water only goes about an inch above it, and then cool the water down SLOWLY, like a couple ice cubes at a time, to about 50 Deg F. sometimes this helps them pass gas, or even have a bowel movement. Just make sure the Temps from your current enclosure and the tub are within 4 degrees of each other and not higher than 65 Deg F. so you dont Temp shock your baby.

  • Albi_the_axolotlt:
    well I don't know how to make a thread and I am very thankful for your help but the real reason I am worried about is that it goes away and comes back constantly like its gets better today then tomorrow morning she is at the top of the tank floating on her side all bubbled up? I do put her in a container with just enough water to cover her back and it helped but it gets annoying and scary when it's consantly happening and I am worried I am doing something horrible wrong.
