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 :)

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**)

Though now I'm having second thoughts >_>

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.

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!)

    I do not have my Axolotl’s yet waiting for my cycle to complete! I am towards the end of my 30g fishless cycle. It has been a long journey. I have easily been processing 4ppm of ammonia in 24 hours for about a week.Each night I add 4ppm ammonia ( Dr Tims) and test every 12 hrs and nitrites read around 2ppm but when I test after 24hrs they are at 0 nitrites. I am using API master Kit. Should nitrites be constantly 0 in a 24 hour period or is a spike 12 hours later normal? Is my tank cycled? PH- is 7.4 Nitrates- 40ppm and will do water change once I am sure tank is cycled

    Hi guys! I just have a quick question regarding axoltols. I’ve had my lotl since October and she is a year old now! Anyways, her water has been on the warmer side of the spectrum (about 69-70 degrees F, 20ish C). I finally got a fan to blow over the top of the tank, and it decreased to about 64 f in 2 hours. Super happy to be able to keep the water cooler, but I was wondering if axoltols have any reaction to the water suddenly becoming cold? Should I lower the temp more slowly? My lotl isn’t acting stressed or anything, but I just want to make sure there won’t be any problems. Thanks!

    I have had my 2 axolotls since June 2020 and I had hoped they would mature the same gender but unfortunately they are not. I am currently on vacation and planned to separate them once I returned, my axolotls are currently being cared for by a friend who knows the basics to care for them properly. A melanoid and a leucistic. I had a feeling but didn't prioritize it enough and now I have many many eggs in the tank with both of my axolotls. I have zero experience with eggs and cannot really care for juvenile axolotls but I really DO NOT want to kill them. What should I do? Are my axolotls okay being in the same tank with them? would the eggs be okay all together in a tank by themselves? Where can I find someone to care for them and hatch them?I'm so stressed and worried I just want the best for them all.

  • axie owner:
    you are going to have to get a bucket and put the eggs in that. they can hatch anytime between 11 and 20 days. order in brine shrimp eggs and get your friend to watch a video on hatching them. make sure your friend does 100% water changes every day. keep the water around 64digres and make sure your friend sends daily updates on them. i found kitchen salt works for the brine shrimp eggs. hope this helps.

    Hi guys.. I might of made an error and need some advice. One of the hides in my tank is too small for my axie now, but I did not want to buy another hide because they are expensive, so I decided to DIY one. I used a Tupperware (cut into a little home) and glued rocks from outside and plants on it. The problem is, I washed the rocks with soap and hot water. I completely wasn’t thinking. When I washed them there was no soap residue that was visible on the rocks, and the rocks have been drying for 3 days on the container. So it has been 3 days since I washed them. I used aquarium safe silicone to glue them on. It was fully dry tonight so I decided to put it in my tank. I had it in for about 3 mins until I realized j had washed the rocks in soap, and I took it out immediately. Should I be worried??? I’m really freaking out, I don’t want anything to happen to my baby! I was truly not thinking. I also read that it was safe to use rocks from outside, but now I’m not sure? Can anyone help

  • Saturn:
    @Paige1warren, Since you took it out straight away it should be ok but I'd still be doing a big water change. When I was a teen, I took some rocks from outside, washed them (probably in soap) and put them in my turtle tank. He died a week or so later and I've never used any rocks from the garden since because you just don't know what's been on them, such as pesticide and I suppose the mineral composition of the rock comes in to play too. Letting them dry for a few days before adding them also would have helped so you should be fine

  • Paige1warren:
    @Saturn, okay, thank you so much! Firstly, I’m so sorry about your turtle :(. My lotl seems to be fine, I haven’t noticed any changes or signs of destress. I do 25% weekly water changes (I have a fully cycled tank), but I will do a 50% change today. I hope that everything turns out fine. Axies are pretty good at showing they are not well or stressed so I’m hoping that I got the rocks out fast enough. Thank you again!
