Requirements for caring for Axolotls:
-minimum 20 gallon tank for one axolotl. An additional 10 gallons is required for each additional Axolotl. (30 gallons for 2, 40 gallons for 3, etc) - no rocks, gravel, marbles, etc. Bare bottom or tile is best for babies. After they reach 5" in length, you may choose to use fine sand. - Axolotls live in cold water, with 18°C being the ideal water temperature. No tank heaters. Cooling fans may be required to keep your water temperature below 20°C. - a cycled tank is a MUST. If you do not have experience cycling a tank, feel free to ask! I can also provide a fully cycled sponge filter for an additional fee, to speed up your set up process. This does require Time, and must be paid for up front. - dechlorinated water is a must! Axolotls are sensitive to chlorine and chloramine in tap water. It can lead to burns, loss of gills, or even death. Adding a water dechlorinator to your water will prevent this. - Axolotls prefer low light. They require at least 1 hiding spot each. Caves, planter pots, etc, are perfect hides! - Axolotls are species only! They cannot be kept with other fish or aquatic species! - Axolotl babies eat a diet of frozen bloodworms or live Blackworms. Once they reach about 4" in length, chopped earthworms or pellets can be added to their diet. By 5", they should be eating earthworms or carnivore pellets exclusively.
