I have a couple of anoles (one Green one Bahaman), one beautiful bearded dragon, and 3 red eared slider turtles. I also have a 75 gal tank with 6 angelfish, a 30 gal tank with a pair of angelfish, and a 20 gal with a few swordtails and pleco, and a tank full of swordtail fry.

I'm thinking I might be obsessed, but I absolutely LOVE all my tanks and can't wait for another addition to my ever-increasing collection of tanks. :D

I also have a puppy that just adores chewing up everything she can get a hold of...

Well......

3 chickens ( before a opossum massacred them there was 5, and before other animals and a strange disease killed them there was 9 I think ).
1 Dog, AKC yellow lab, though she's more white.
1 Cat, found as a stray when she was young, totally white all over, I think she's 12 or 13.
7 T. granulosa, 5 of which are adults.
3 A. gracile, all adults.
And I would estimate about 50+ snails, several scuds, 2 water skaters, little bug larvae ( the kind that make a shell thing out of debris ), and lots of other pond life ( like copepods ).

That's it for now, but I want more chickens since most of them got killed or died of disease. And of course I want my newts to breed! :D

I have...

1 dwarf axolotl (currently staying with a friend until I can take him home)
5 Neon tetras (also in the care of my friend until I'm in a better place)
3 Cats (2 females, 1 male all a pain in the a**)
1 Dog

Everybody was crowed around Munchkin when I tried to take pictures of him on a visit, so I didn't get a good shot of him unfortunately :/ Originally I was going to have him and two babies but they're eating their sitter out of house and home so I told her to sell them and I'd wait for the next batch to grow out. Though now I'm having second thoughts >_>

    Ok, I'll go to the pet store this afternoon to get some pH up

    Okay so what I found is lower pH can bring on the symptoms ur lil guy is having. Your pH isn’t too too low, but it is lower then recommended so it’s possible having him exposed to a low pH for an extended amount of time has caused him to be really stressed out and stopped eating. Is your tank with the sand still set up and running? And if so, what is the pH in that tank? I’m thinking a filtered tank might be the best for him, but still leave him in the tub until he seems to be improving. Could you send me a picture of the sand and of your little guy? I put my girl on sand when she was still fairly small and it is normally fine if the sand is fine.

    if the tank isn’t set up, that’s okay. I would recommend today going and getting an air stone to put in the tub that hes currently in. Creating more aeration in the water can increase pH. You can also add 1 teaspoon of baking soda very slowly for 5 gallons of water to help. I don’t know much about the baking soda thing and I’m not sure how completely safe it is. This might help explain it a little better How to adjust the pH in your aquarium

    if you have the API water test kit, check all the perimeters in the tank. We can check the cycling process with the perimeters. And I’m actually not sure how to upload a pic lololol I thought it would be easier but I tried it myself and now I’m confused! It says to attack a link, I’m not sure how that works

    Also I forgot to add to my response on ur thread, keep trying to feed him bloodworms and see if he will start to take them. If you get a turkey vaster you can suck up dethawed bloodworms and dangle them right infront of his nose, might get his interest.

    I rotate between blood worms and brine shrimp. He's in my bedroom and will stay there for a while, I closed the light and just left a salt lamp on. I will bring him a hiding place right away! Isn't he the cutest thing! 😂

    @Josiane An axolotl of your's size should be on a diet of chopped earthworms or live blackworms (if they're under 3"). Bloodworms and brine shrimp are not a sufficient diet.

    Unlike
  • madcaplaughs:
    @Josiane Based on the photo, I believe there is a chance your axolotl may have become impacted from ingesting sand. Axolotls under 5" should not be kept on substrate for this reason.

    Unlike
  • madcaplaughs:
    @Josiane The nearly diminished gill stalks are also indicative of poor water quality. You need to test your tap water's parameters using a liquid test kit (not strips! Those are inaccurate). The slime coat coming off may also be due to water quality or the water conditioner.
