    Default EGGS! lots and LOTS of eggs!

    180 so far, and thats just counting from the front of our tank. I am estimating ~ 250 total, including obviously infertile ones.

    I Put our axoltols back into their tank after being in tubs for about a month, and I THOUGHT I saw little sperm packets floating around.... Sure enough, earlier today, the rocks are COVERED with little brown and white balls! I am SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cant wait to see what kinds hatch out. I am crossing my fingers and hoping for some lucys, but I am sure they will all be wild type like mom *Cries*

    here are some pics, and some ultra-close ups with the new lens. [100mm] First time using my tripod!





    and a 100% crop of the above picture



    Ill post updated pictures of the egg development as days go by if anyone is interested. Thanks for looking!
