When I was 10 I had an obsession with Axolotls....I'm thinking that one day I might just buy a 200 gallon tank and stick in a couple of the cute suckers. I HATE cleaning out small tanks, which is why I like bigger tanks....

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

Are they alive when you feed them? :'(

I have two in a thirty an they love it! Lol they are amazing.



Also, yes, the minnows are alive when fed, they don't respond well to dead food. They eat it, but not as readily as live. I don't see an issue with it, the minnows don't suffer, they are swallowed whole.

Yes, axolotls are not picky. The rule of thumb for feeding time is if it fits in the axxies mouth, they'll eat it. This includes things like gravel, sand, and tank mates.

I am not going to try and argue with you about what I feed my axxies. I feed them minnows, big deal?! Why is it a problem? O.o

I was just wondering because I want a few and don't have the heart to feed them minnows. I wasn't trying to argue

Not you, the other person. But yeah, I feed minnows and earthworms, and MINE are picky, I spoiled them with live food and now won't readily accept dead food.
