Awesome. I think I might pick up a second to go in with "her", if there's a chance they're truly neotenic! Her gills were smaller when I got her, but they are far fuller now than they were a week ago. One of the brances on the left side is still only a stub, but the rest of them have grown those little "fingers" at the end, rather than simply being stubs like they were. Maybe "she" had them nibbled on in a stock tank, or something. Or maybe aquatic conditions are just better now, and she's changed her mind. I can't be sure, but I'm thinking her tail looks more fin-like than it did when I brought her home, too. Is this common, or even possible?

thanks again for the help! I really can't find much information about these guys at the larval stage.

Also- could these be housed with axolotls? Or would I have to worry about one eating the other?

Do you have any recommended reads about these guys? I'd like to find something a little deeper than the standard page that's coming up on Google. . .

thanks,
Ronnie
