Hi! I rescued a pair of wild type axolotls who were both supposed to be boys but the 500 babies I have say otherwise 😂 could anyone tell me what colors they see? Super excited to watch the grow. Thank you!

Hmmmmm, some wild types... but the pale ones don't look like the whites I'm used to seeing, so I'm not sure what their story is. You may need to wait for some to grow up to find out!
Retired lab axos who are wild-types are typically het for wild because of why they're bred (for a set of sibling animals that are visually distinct under the scope) but with recreational keepers it's a completely random chance. All you can know for sure is that they're not GFP or Cherry, lol!

From my experience from breeding axolotls, those lighter colored axolotls are luecistics. The others look like standard wild types. Congratulations! :)

Looks like you got mostly wildtypes with some leucistics, and it looks like you may have a few melanoids in there as well.

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
