Had my guys for about 4 weeks now in a 48L tank. I can't believe how quickly they've grown. 3 inches already ( 1and half on arrival. I have been doing daily changes as they were tiny babies from pots. No cycling. They're doing great but I have bought a 100L tub.... yes a tub ! As I'm an experienced aquarium keeper and I know better than to prompt tank needs with babies.
Anyway
No fish cycle for 2 weeks. Waterfall filter stacked on natural tile .double sides filter so I stole a seachem purigen filter bag from 1 of my top tanks to give axi tub a boost.
Any advice from you guys is most gratfully appreciated.

My advices:
Temperatures up to the low 70s Fahrenheit!
Feed them with nightcrawlers (large earthworms) and store bought bloodworm cubes!

I've been feeding them bloodworms since they arrived. They have also been esting chopped up earthworms blanched ( great advice from another axi keeper ) last was fed last night. Half each. No poop this morning. Not floating either. Should I wait for poop before feeding again?

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
