I had seen a tank once that had lucky bamboo fully submerged. Do you know if that's possible or does it do better semi?

It's best to do semi, they'll usually just rot if they don't have any above the water. @Jenny10

That's what I thought. Thanks. And I love seeing your pictures of Helios! He's so cute!

Was fortunate enough to be gifted a huge (used) 120 gallon tank and also got a bunch of new plants to put into Helios's tank. Got some lucky Bamboo (x8, only put 5 pieces in tank as remaining three are in quarantine), Ribbon plant (x3), and an El Niño fern. I'll post more pictures in a second! #luckybamboo #plantedaquarium #plantedtank #heliostheaxolotl #axolotl #indoor #indoorgarden #indoorgardening #indoors #winter #aquarium #semiaquatic #semiaquaticplant #aquaticplants

He really is! Axolotls are such incredibly creatures. Their genetics and seemingly endless regeneration abilities is what caused scientists to introduce GFP (green fluorescent protein, glows under UV) into the gene pool so they could use it to track Limb regeneration and certain tumors/cancers!!! @cyndi

My little boy is a Golden albino, I'm going to be getting a Wild (mostly black with flecks of green, gold, and brown), and a Lucy (white/super light pink, usually dark red gills, some reflective irridiphores but not much).

Yep!!! They lay eggs 🥰🥰 my baby is technically too young to sex. He may actually be a She! Which is why I only have one right now, I don't want accidentally babies (that I would have to cull because I don't have that kind of room). I have to wait for Helios to hit maturity before I can get another. They breed like crazy! @cyndi

Boys....drop just like human males 😂💀😂💀😂 they have cloacas so besides boys dropping a bit more than girls it's pretty hard to tell! Usually lighter colored axies (Golden, Lucy, albinos) will have tiny dark colored finger tips and darker axies (Mel's, wilds, coppers) will have tiny white finger tips! @cyndi I definitely could sell them but honestly it's a somewhat niche market. They require alot in terms of living conditions and not alot of pet owners do proper research before hand and will

Kill them out of ignorance or lack of care. @cyndi lots of people on FB always talk about getting rescues and it's horrifying to see how these rescues look. It'd break my heart to sell to someone who may just let my babies die painfully.

I feed Helios nightcrawlers, it's disgusting but it's totally worth it to see him eating! I love hand feeding him, mind you I use forceps to hold the worm tho 🤢😂 @cyndi

Right?! Haha worms are soooooo gross but with having a worm farm I could make worm tea and use the "used" soil for quality dirt! @cyndi I found a website that sells super small cute ones but they don't have a tray just for the tea. Which means I'd have to put alot more work into it! 🤢😂
