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.

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.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
