How long can an axolotl go without eating?
Well fed axolotls can usually go without eating for up to 3 weeks and suffer no long term effects, provided the water temperature isn’t over 60F.
How many worms should my axolotl eat?
Buy the small Dendrobaena worms and cut the worms into very small pieces no longer than 1cm in length and feed them this twice a day. As the Axolotls grow in size you can alter the length of the worm fed until it can eat a full worm. By the age of 6 months they are a good size and should be eating two full worms each.
Will axolotls stop eating when full?
Most axies stop when they are full, but there are still a lot of adults that upchuck if they stuff themselves. You can’t really overfeed a juvie, but adults need their owners to control their food. If your axie is eating a dozen worms in a sitting she probably needs to cut down a bit, or just be fed once a week.
Why does my axolotl not want to eat anything?
One of the most common reasons why axolotls don’t eat is because of oversaturation with food. This can cause a lot of panic between owners, but it is a well-known fact that axolotls are very adaptable when it comes to food. In fact, they can go days and even weeks without eating.
What should I do if I have an axolotl in my Aquarium?
The same way you fill an aquarium for your fish is the same way you should fill it for axolotls. Condition the tap water before using it to fill the aquarium. Conditioning will help to remove the harmful chemicals that can kill your axolotls. You have to ensure that the tank has a lid. Ensure that it is always covered.
How often should I Feed my axolotl dog?
If you cook chicken, don’t hesitate to give your axolotls a piece. A cooked liver and beef can provide a good supplement. Since they swallow food without chewing, you need to feed them at least twice a week. They can live for over ten years.
What should the temperature be for an axolotl to eat?
If the water temperatures are not at the correct levels for prolonged periods, axolotls will stop eating. The ideal temperature is between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius (60-64 degrees Fahrenheit), although they can adapt to temperatures of 10 – 20 degrees Celsius.
