The owners of this rare aquatics business have worked hard to help preserve the lines of Axolotls, as well as dedicate the last few years to import, master, and accomplish a full line of andersoni.  The entire aquatic communities in the US has the ability to learn or own.  Autumn always found it most important to educate everyone that had any interest.  They have other projects that are priceless to all of society and the aquatics world.  

In the middle of the night on Sept 28th 2018 a fire broke out in the basement, residence/business of MicroQuatics.  This fire & smoke has caused much damage to their business and personal property
There was a heartbreaking number of aquatic lives lost, they suffered, Josh and Autumn were helpless.  600+  baby Ambystoma Andersoni  (rare salamander species)  along with other aquatic animals lost.

Right now they have an EMERGENCY SITUATION to relocate sooner than planned, with what they have been able to save.  The house and business are not safe for the live aquatics or themselves.  It is toxic, with no electricity in parts of the house & with most power being supplied by generators.  Josh and Autumn refuse to abandon the saved lives.  They need financial help to relocate. 

Josh and Autumn statement:
Our goal is to get our animals moved safely into this space.  There is also 2 small dwellings for our living needs. With our $50,000 mark set through this campaign & your help, we can make this happen!
