If you want to speed up the hatching process put a heater in and heat up the water :) otherwise they can take a month or so to hatch, or a long time anyways.
I'm still waiting for mine to lay eggs! Spring is coming and I hope they lay :D I called mine Yin & Yang! LOL!

And culture some daphnia you should feed them live food and everyday :)

I am well aware of that, lol I was wanting them to hatch slowly because I don't have any food cultures. Lol so room temperature hatching it is! At least until I get some food going.

Oh yeah, i'm going to do that with my next ones :)
Yeah, you can usually get cultures online really cheap.
But yeah, feed them newly hatched brineshrimp (Artemia), small Daphnia or Moina, and microworms (microworms are not ideal and won't be well received until the axolotl larvae develop their front legs).

:)

Yes, I know. Lol I have read that website several times. :) I'm trying to see if I can order some daphnia and microworms, not going to do brine shrimp because the salt content is too high, and because they don't have as much nutritional value as daphnia.

I'm in the US, I've been looking and I'm pretty sure I can buy them already cultured... I just have to look.

I'm not sure of their nutritional value as opposed to brine shrimp but have you considered fairy shrimp? Fairy shrimp are the freshwater equivalent to Artemia and if you want to "grow your own" they're rather easy to raise (almost identical to raising brine shrimp without the salt). I've done it multiple times (though their eggs were mixed into tadpole shrimp eggs that I've hatched in the past) and their larvae is very similar in size and appearance to Artemia. It may be worth considering if you can't find other cultures.

The one problem would be finding the eggs. In the UK I've not had much luck (we'd have to import them as our native fairy shrimp species are endangered) but in the USA you might be able to find somewhere to get them from. There's a company called Arizona Fairy Shrimp that may be worth googling and looking at, they have a lot of info and I believe they also sell eggs (though I've not shopped with them).

Regardless I'm so excited for you! That double embryo egg is going to prove interesting, I hope things continue to go well!
