Wow, sorry to hear.
Looks like these two will give you plenty of opportunities though.

I don't know if I want to try again just yet... I left the eggs in the tank last night, and the ammount has doubled... Lol

You do have more time to get food--that was really the only problem. It's up to you.

On the axolotl/salamander forums I used to frequent there were plenty of people who actually shipped the eggs themselves--they are VERY hardy. If you want, you could send the eggs to people who have food ready.

Only problem with sending eggs is, what if they are all duds? I would feel so bad... Lol

Of course I could deffinately get some food going at this point...

I am in a bit of a dilemma... Lol! I just don't know what to do.


Edit: here is a picture of one of the plant in the tank, Ruth has eggs all over the place...

The way I see it is that the eggs were laid before the new week, that gives you plenty of time to order in live food if you need to; as it isn't near the end of a week there is no risk of food getting stuck in the post over the weekend.

If you're able to get some live food cultures in I'd say give it another go, maybe only take a handful of the eggs laid and leave the rest for mum and dad so you don't have too many. May sound mercenary but you must do what you think is best and I imagine it may be easier to handle if you can focus on a small number, especially after the tragedy of last time (though that wasn't your fault).

I hope you are able to decide something you're comfortable with soon It seems like no matter your choice now you'll always have the opportunity for more eggs later.

Yeah, I was thinking about grabbing ten or so and trying again... I suppose I could order a culture starter kit from one of the breeders on here... I think I got a couple really good quotes...

Of course at the rate it looks like we are going, I'll probably have a new clutch every month... Because it is just two days shy of exactly one month since the first eggs were found.

Okay... So I couldnt stop once I started to collect them... There are 138 total by my count, and that's all I could find... Now I admit I didn't look very hard, so there may still be some in the tank for mom and dad... I dunno..
