Sander, Pirate had quite a few offspring with her mutation. Jacob offers that line for sale from time to time.

Hmm, America is about on the other side of the world, I don´t think shipping some to Belgium is an option :tongue:

Hey Jake and all :)

I just read through this post again. Just fascinating. I've been given a chimera last summer. The owner thought she was sick and I was able to tell her otherwise. Then this incredible woman just offered her to me !

I have a brother and a sister of hers (same parents but not same clutch). I will put them together as soon as the littluns are big enough. And then reproduce them, just as Jake did, to see if there is any chimeras coming out of it, again :)

A chimera is an animal with two sets of DNA instead of one. They usually end up exhibiting different markings/colors/etc on the different sides of their body.

Why is this making me want to get an axolotl? I already have two leopard geckos and six Eastern newts. xD

I believe it to be a Chimera, something to due to an embryonic cell division anomaly as I understand -but I am no expert in genetics.

After a week of looking I found these two, I know I have some of younger embryos, but I can't find them right now.


Pics won't load ?

    The second photo looks reminiscent of partially-digested worms, though I've never seen anything like that. Have you checked your parameters lately?

    For now I'd tub the axolotl and do daily 100% water changes until you're able to test your parameters

    I'd also recommend ordering a liquid test kit such as the API Freshwater Master Test Kit since strips are generally unreliable and inaccurate.

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew if java fern, the floaters like frog bit, anubis, and moss balls could be all kept without any substrate with the axies? I have sand right now with an axie who is over a year but we were just testing the waters really but I continously read about a lot of health issues with sand impacting constipation and hiding bad bacteria and such, we just want to make him comfy.

  • Junaz:
    I don't know about the java ferns, but the moss balls and anything that floats on the surface of the water should be totally fine! I'm not saying the java ferns aren't an option, I just personally don't know if they can live without some sort of substrate

  • Littlewolf:
    Java ferns actually do better when they are attached to a piece of wood or other decor anyway. Their rhizomes can be easily burried in sand and then they dont grow properly. The others can also be kept without sand no problem.

    @Chelsea smith All of the plants you've listed can be kept without substrate. Plants with rhizomes cannot be submerged in substrate, as burying the rhizome will cause the plant to suffocate and rot. You can pin these plants under on onto decoration, rocks, etc., just be careful that the rhizome is not in substrate. Moss balls and floating plants, naturally, do not need substrate either. Do note that floating plants require a good amount of light.

    Hi guys, I have an 11 month old axoltol who is about 9 inches long. She normally is a pig when it comes to food. I switch between pellets and night crawlers, and sometimes blood worms if she had a big meal the day before. Anyways, I went to go feed her a night crawler today, and she wouldn’t eat it! She turned her head and went to the corner. I noticed that when I cut this worm it seems to release a lot more goop then other worms I’ve cut, I tried to wash it off the best I could with cold water. Do you think maybe she didn’t want to eat it because of that? She normally will eat anything in front of her face. Water perimeters are perfectly normal by the way, and temp is at a steady 63 degrees F.

    Also, she looks perfectly fine. Tail is straight, gills aren’t curled, no fungus or anything. It’s probably no big deal, it’s just unusual behavior for her so it really caught my eye. Love my girl and want to make sure everything’s ok.
