Hi Morg, that's an exceptionally nice shanjing juvenile. Thanks for sharing. What do you feed them?

The individual in the pic is just under 10cm in length.
However he's the largest out of the bunch with one being only 2cm still and is l the plain brown colour of a newly morphed juvenile.
All have been fed the same, and the smaller ones are in a seperate tank to make sure the larger dont get all the food.

Nice newt,
cant wait for the colours to come through on my Kweichowensis Juvs. How come there is such a large difference in size between them to then.

Heres a pic of my smallest.
Dont know why the size difference, I suppose to start with the stronger would get to the food first, but since early on, Ive made sure that all the individuals are well fed and on the same food types.
As you can see with the rounded stomach of this individual, its not through lack of eating lol.

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
