Sakura: all salamanders are illegal here because of a fear that they will crossbreed with our native tiger salamander (which is stupid, cause axolotls are Mexican, and if they really wanted to, they could just walk up and find a tiger salamander!!!) I was wondering why I couldn't find duckweed
bettasusa: they stay in that stage their whole lives unless they are kept out of water for a prolonged period of time, then they will turn into a regular old salamanery thing.
I've got 99 problems but a fish ain't one.

From my research, and my friend who breeds them... they are hard to keep in groups, should be singletons, need large tanks and are hard to catch/keep alive as babies due to aggression. I love them, but way to much work for me. My tanks stay at 78F without heaters so I could never have cold enough water for them.
I gotta be honest. I find them just a little bit creepy. Like lots creepy. There's something about that grinning face that makes me think they're going to crawl out of the tank in the middle of the night and bite me. o.O Overactive imagination? Just a little.
