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 ?

    My new axolotl enjoys floating. He doesn't seem stressed, or like he's being forced to float. He just likes to chill at the top. Why do some enjoy floating around? Most of my other axolotls are content staying stationary, but this one just continues to move, only stopping to eat. Again, he doesn't seem stressed, and it's not a fretful swim.

    Hi, Im fairly new to keeping axolotls. I have to lil buddies that I got a few months back. They were doing fine, up until a month ago when one got fungus in his gills. Took him out to fridge him, then the other guy got it too. I'm currently fridging both and doing salt baths for one (not enough fridge space to keep that much pretreated water for both at the same time). Its been hard to tell if its helping or not and then about a week and half ago one of my axies had a bunch of weird white goop in the water. I immediately changed it, happened a tiny bit again, then seemed to be okay. I had returned him to the tank, but it happened again. Back to the fridge but wanted hear from people who knew more

    @Kailynom My cousin (who i got my baby axies from) had the same problem. She developed an allergy to the bloodworms she was feeding them and it got really bad. To the point where her throat would close up just being around the bloodworms. Happened within a few months. Be safe :)

    @MadamePirateOwl Fridging is best left to life-or-death situations, and salt baths are unnecessarily harsh, stressful, and abrasive. I'd suggest doing tea baths instead (using caffeinated black tea, where the only ingredient is black tea).

    so no idea what the goop is?

    Hard to tell without a photo, but might be algae or fungus floating. Water changes will take care of that.

    It definitely came from the axolotl. Looked to be mixed into poo the first time. Can I post the photos here?

    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.
