    Default Axolotl Update

    Sorry to all those that PM'd me ran into a nice long streak of doubles at work and didn't have the time nor energy to get online /:

    Well, out of all the eggs that were harvested only about 30 completely hatched. Then out of those 30 about 17 survived due to a large amount of cannibalism, even when fed 2 times a day if their siblings were unfortunate enough to bump into a brother or sister it was guaranteed that they would lose a limb or if they were small enough swallowed whole. It was pretty gruesome/terrifying :|

    One of the poor guys got his legs eaten before I could reach in and grab him out. I have named him YumYum and the lucky guy gets his own 20gal aquarium to himself.


    Here are a few pictures of them, I have kept 4 of them (besides yumyum) and they are growing rapidly in a 20 gal aquarium with plenty of hiding spots. I plan on setting up a 55 gal for them in about 2 weeks when they outgrow the 20.

    They're such little brats, as soon as someone walks past their cage they think theyre getting fed so they swim to the surface of the water. However theyre not smart enough to find their own food so you have to put it right in front of their face.
