I was thinking in cm then for some dumbass reason. You 'may' have enough room for one axie, but consider mine grew to 30cm before he died, I'd consider a different tank personally.

that wont fit a full grown one but a smaller one would be fine for a while

Thanks man, I wish you could have one too. I ordered mine off wardsci.com, but thats only for the states.


Yeah I was thinking of getting another, but I've moved to Tropical Fish nowadays, but it's an idea that'll keep playing around. You ok with setting up the tank and stuff? Matured filter media and whatnot?

I could use some help with this, Ive never had one before and Ive read up on them. But I would like to know what all you did to keep your tank axolotl friendly.

Well with any fish tank, the filter requires some kind of bacteria to process and remove waste chemicals, usually ammonia. If you set up a new tank and bang some life in, there won't be enough bacteria to work with all the waste. This will create ammonia spikes which'll harm your axie. Do you have another fish tank set up or anything?

The most common practise is to take some filter media that's being used in a tank at the moment, i.e. 'mature' and place it in the new filter in order to allow the bacteria to spread around the new media.

Approximately how much do you think it would cost for a Texan to purchase an Axolotl?

Any friends or family with a fish tank who'd be willing to give you some? If not you'll just have to do water changes (with dechlorinated water of course) every day for a few weeks, large ones at that, in order to keep the ammonia levels down.

Only dechlorinator into the water before it goes into the tank, as with any fish.

This is an excellent site for information about Axies. In regards to the cycling of the filter (the maturation process) you may have to just put your Axie in and hope for the best, but as I say, very frequent water changes, perhaps a water test kit and a very keen eye for illness in your Axie, and it might make it okay.

What kind of filter are you using, any idea yet?

Alright thanks. I have a bottle of dechlorinater. I also have a bottle of amonia eliminator, will this help?

I cant find the old filter so Im going to purchase a new one, any particularaly good ones.

I've never heard of a specific ammonia eliminator, but if it actually works then that would help yes. Read around about cycling a tank, about both the 'Fishless' and 'Fish-in' methods, and how best to go about them.

As for filters it depends entirely on how much you have to spend. Canister filters (external) are always the best option, i.e. the TetraTec EX range, get one with a rating as close to the volume of your tank as possible, but always go over rather than under, if you get me. Don't bother with under-gravel filters at all. Choose a tank first then shop around for the filter, you'll no doubt find a bargain.

Its called ACE Amonia Chloramine Eliminator and its for fresh water, salt water, and goldfish. I will check this cycle out. I want the longest life for him possible.


Might work then, make sure you read the dosage properly. Find out what size of tank you'd like if you plan to get a new one then we can move on to the filtration issues. I'll PM you a link to an excellent Aquarium site, they'll be able to give you much better help than me overall.

Quote by Wikipedia
Axolotls live at temperatures of 14 °C (57 °F)-20 °C (68 °F), preferably 17 °C (63 °F)-18 °C (64 °F). Lower temperatures slow down their metabolism, although temperatures around 10 °C (50 °F) are a panacea when it comes to treating disease. Higher temperatures can lead to stress and increased appetite. Chlorine in tapwater is harmful to axolotls. A single typical axolotl typically requires a 10-US-gallon (38 l/8.3 imp gal) tank with around 150 millilitres (5.3 imp fl oz/5.1 US fl oz) of water. Axolotls spend a majority of the time on the bottom of the tank.
