The adultsi have in there are:
Toothless, Ruth, Valoo, Chusi, Speck, and Ghost. And theni have Custard and Sprinkles in the container. Lol After thati have one more juvie that is growing, his name is Cheese.










This is little Custard!


Here we have Cheese!




and last but not least, my special needs baby, Sprinkles!!






Toothless is a normal dark wild type. Male.
Ruth is a normal freckled leusistic. Female.
Valoo is a GOD wild type. Male.
Chusi is a normal gold albino. Gender unknown.
Ghost is a normal white albino. Gender unknown.
Speck is a normal freckled leusistic. Gender unknown.
Custard is a heavily freckled leusistic. Gender unknown.

I feed them live fish (rosy red minnows), earth worms and red wigglers, and also I feed tilapia fillet strips. And to the babies i feed a constant supply of live black worms.

I love lotls. They are definitely on my list of species I eventually want to own and breed. Yours look great.

By the way I love the soap holder perches.

Thanks so much! They are really great pets, and so much fun to have. I breed mine regularly, and it's so much fun to.watch them grow and change.

Lol thanks, they love the perches. I find them sometimes fighting over who gets to sit in them, I need to get more.

At first I noticed the perches but wasn't paying much attention to what they actually were made out of, that's a really creative idea that they obviously really like if they bicker over who gets to sit there! While it seems like their diet is nice and varied so you likely don't have to worry, just be aware that rosy red minnows have high quantities of thiaminase, an enzyme that breaks down thiamine (Vit. b1) which can lead to a deficiency.

Yeah, lol the fish aren't the staple, I buy a bag of fifty once a month and they eat them through the month as they are able to catch them. Their staple is worms, and when I can get them I also feed salmon pellets.

I got two more babies last night!! I'm so excited! If you are in the us and looking to get an axolotl, pm me and I will give you the contact info of the woman i get mine from, she is the best!

Okay! So the freckled leusistic in the pic is my baby Custard, also from the same breeder, and then the two new ones are: Jellybean the albino... and I haven't named the wild type yet.
