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 >_>
WO! That axie looks soooo cool!

1 Adult Female Leucistic Axolotl (old photo)
2 Little Baby Echinotriton Andersoni Newts
1 Adult Fire salamander (sex unknown)
1 Female Panther Chameleon
2 Snails
1 Ball Python (sex unknown)
Those Andersoni are looking great! Look at that nice fat belly! I cant wait to see the pics when they get bigger :D

Not sure I should admit to our zoo, but this is probably the one place I won't be told I'm crazy (even though I am).

35 adult axolotls, approx. 2000 eggs, larvae, juveniles
3 ADF from a batch I rasied from eggs
7 adult stingrays (freshwater)
53 aquariums with too many fish to count
various species of invertebrates
live food cultures (daphnia, rotifers, phytoplankton, microworms, vinegar eels)
9,000 gallon koi pond full of large koi
7 indoor cats
2 outdoor cats we recently adopted as they were starving in our yard

I dunno why this thread popped up now, but I'm gonna answer! haha.

I have 4 axolotls: one adult male dark wild type, one juvenile leucistic, one juvenile white albino, and one juvenile wild type.

I have one fish tank with 3 cichlids: a blue acei, an electric yellow labidochromis, and I believe a Kenyii. We also have a small pleco and a big raphael catfish in there.

And I have one dog: a corgi-German Shepherd mix :)

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

Wow, it's been almost 2 years since I was on here last! Crazy how time can fly by without you noticing. I suppose some updates are in order haha.

My dwarf boy and tetras died while in the care of that friend. I wasn't ever really given solid reasons, but it's been so long back that I can't even remember the details of the conversation. After a rather sad breakup, I lost my dog and both of the girl kitties. I do still have my black cat, Twitch though!


These are my pets now (who will not be lost to breakups or outside care, as I'm finally in my very own apartment!):

1 six year old male cat, my big boy Twitch
6 male rats in a very large cage, 3 of them are dwarf rats
1 male leopard gecko, 11 years old
2 female leopard geckos, one 11 the other turning 4 in April
Aaaaannd...

Finally, 1 little wild type axie of my very own! I completely forgot about this website and lost Margie's contact information, so I ended up buying him from the local pet store. But, they told me he was from one of her batches anyhow so I still got a fantastically healthy dude! I've had it since November and watching him/her grow is so fun :)

I just noticed this one...we have two cats, Pampam (nine years this summer) and Leo (unknown but approximately threee years). Then newts, five c. pyrrhogaster (three females, two males - some young too but unsure to be alive in the future since I've not had luck with them), seven hypselotriton orientalis (only one female), two c. ensicauda ensicauda males and a fish tank (bristlenose pleco, myers coolie loaches, some tetras) and shrimps (neocaridina and caridina). Not that big zoo compared to some of you :) kids would like to have more but I'm still the major carekeeper so no dogs or anything too bonding for us.

Lol, don't be like that! you'll get the hang of them in the end, then you'll wonder what all the fuss was about. :)
If they start to look too thin you can throw in a hand full of damp leaf litter as back up and let them pick the bugs out for themselves, just change the leaf litter every week. Their growth might be quite slow, but it'll get them through the tiny awkward stage with minimal effort.

Well this popped up for me, so why not answer? Lol, I used to believe I had a zoo until I read what everyone else had :D

I lovingly care for:

2 dogs- Australian shepherd and a CorgixSchnauzer
3 cats
7 platy fish and a few of their babies
2 rats (everyone who said they were gross initially eventually fell in love with their cute charm!)
3 hermit crabs
1 goldfish who lives in a fountain outside
1 minnow who rooms with the goldfish lol
2 salamander larvae (two lined and the other is yet to be identified)
and I'm not sure if these guys count but two box turtles showed up in our backyard over the years and have since laid eggs and a bunch of little babies were appearing. They were the darndest things!)

  • AMurry24537:
    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @XxJennXx, I don't believe so. They are closely related to tigers and my tiger doesn't brumate. I think first year they might but after they see they aren't needing to, they should be good. They might try and hibernate to, mine did for the first year but now I see him crawling around right now.

  • RG:
    @Pookisoo, The refrigerator is a good hospital for tigers.Temperature between 7 and 2 degrees Celsius can stop bacteria. If necessary or if you dare 0 to -2 can also help.Reduce the temperature in a few days from 7 degrees to 2. After that you can reduce further. Feel free to let it sit for a few weeks. Place the animal in a plastic container with a lid with some air holes. Fill it with some soil and / or leaves. Check regularly whether there is still moisture or ice in this container. At temperatures above 2 degrees, they do not go into hibernation. They will then live on their reserves. Doing nothing is not an option, I speak from experience. You can avoid these kinds of problems by keeping them fairly dry for much of the year.

    Hi guys! I’m new to this site and a new axolotl owner. I’ve had my baby (his name is toothpick) for about a month or so now. I finally got a water testing kit and I tested the perimeters earlier today. My ammonia was at 3 ppm and my nitrite was at 2 ppm. This freaked me out because I know they are supposed to be at 0 ppm. I did a water change a little bit ago and it went down to ammonia 1 ppm and in between 1-2 ppm nitrate. I change 50% of my water weekly and clean up any pieces of waste or excess food with a turkey bastwr everyday. Could this just be because the tank isn’t fully cycled yet? Should I be concerned? Toothpick hasn’t shown any signs of distress
