One red cherry shrimp died which i put in a box with live tubifex, then i saw the tubifex were covering the dead shrimp. Now my question is can i still feed these tubifex to my newts ? I just bought the shrimp 5-11 days before it died. the others are doing ok, i bought the shrimps from 2 different sellers so im not sure how many days ago i bought that one.

I added a picture, could you tell me what the yellow things on the moss ball are ?

Those yellow things look like eyeballs but I'm not sure where the nose and mouth are. (This is funny).

The yellow things look like some kind of midge larvae.
It is not a good idea to use dead animals as food for your food for the salamanders.

I love that you labeled the comedic level of your comment.

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!

  • MelissaKenyon:
    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help with our axy, she absolutely loves her food and we've notice tonight after her worms( that she ate in one mouthful) that she ue was struggling to get up to the top for air. She's never done this before, she usually goes up every 5-10 mins or so. She is 6 months old and seems very healthy. Could it be a problem with our water level or water quality or could she just be to full?
