No the babies are from the adults, Valoo and Toothless are both male, so either or both of them could be daddy. Lol!!

Oh, that's fantastic to hear! I didn't realize either that they were so easy to breed, either!! Or do they hold onto sperm like some fish and geckos?

Hello! I have been following your thread for awhile. I have had a tiger salamander for about 3 years and I love him to death. I learned about Axolotls some time ago while researching things about my salamander and became very interested in them as well. I have been looking for Axolotls in the area for quite some time, but have been unable to locate any. If you have any that are not claimed or end up with more babies from the next batch, would you consider selling me 2 in the future? I don't have A LOT of money but I have a very supportive bf that would chip in. I currently have an empty 30 gallon that I could work on setting up for the little guys if you are willing to ship me two.

If you do not want to sell them or do not want to ship them that is okay too. I didn't speak up for any before because I have never had a live critter sent to me (Not sure why because my bf is always home to receive packages). Anyway, thank you for your time.

Jessie

Afternoon All,

I posted a new board but someone recommended I might be better off here so here we go:

I'm looking at getting an axolotl and I wanted to get some tips and maybe some pictures of other peoples tanks to find out what setup others have.

I have heard some conflicting things about tank sizes so I wanted to get opinions on that and if there is anyone from Australia I would LOVE to hear how you go in Summer with them

I was looking at this tank

http://www.masterpet.com/Products/Fi...ssic-Aq-50Ltr/

I have the 20Ltr versions for my Bettas and the tanks themselves are great value

I was looking at black sand with a few black river rocks and some natural rock looking ornaments like these:

I was looking at silk plants because I heard they are not good with too much light so I figured fake silk plants would be the go

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

Fake or real plants do not matter, you can also deal with lighting place floating plants like foxtail and java moss.

But yes fake do help, make sure the sand is thin, because axolotls eat by vacuuming up their food, so you want to make sure that the sand will not be harmful when ingested

As for the rocks here is a list of safe rocks that can be added with an axolotl.
http://www.caudata.org/forum/f46-beg...lotl-safe.html

Axolotls enjoy having more length, so take that in account when buying, they like to walk around, and at least min. it's 10 gallons per axolotl.

When buying axolotls, make sure they are healthy, If you buy more than one, do make sure they are the same size and always well fed or you might wake up with an axolotl becoming the other's diner.

Adults have less of a canabalistic tendency.

for more information check here it is a basic guide for setups and such! Enjoy!
