My New Melanies Axolotl, Leucistic Axolotl

So today I went to a HUGE 38th Anniversary SALE at Denny's Pet World. All fresh water fish were 50% off and salt water 30% off. All tanks were at the dealer cost and it was a mad house!!! So anyways after waiting our turn to look in the fish room we come across what looks like water dragons. They were so cute and interesting, I fell in love with the albino one and my boyfriend liked the other one. So we got the pair! They are so cool and low maintenance!!






Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM

A cold cup was not my destiny-Heart Breaker

Cute. :)
Yours look like babies though, so I'd recommend dividing the tank for now. Babies are cannibals until a certain point (usually they eat each others legs), adults are not so they can eventually be together again.
Gizmothefreaky has two of these and she knows a ton about them if you have any questions about them.

Love axolotls!! I want a tank when I have the space. They would most certainly eat a betta if put in the same tank. Plus, these guys like it a lot cooler than betta do.

So jealous!!! :P

Sorry for such a late reply, I have been so busy since I last posted. Lot's of tanks to clean and lot's of house work.

I wish you could peacefully keep them with Betta's but they are very mouthy, they will try and eat anything smaller than their mouths. Plus they like their temp between 57-72 degrees, our poor Betta's would need a winter jacket lol.

I still have no names so suggestions are welcome. I am really loving these two, they crack me and my boyfriend up. I love watching them swim and jump up as if they got startled. I recommend these awesome little water dragons to anybody!!! They are so unique and soooo darn cute!

Beautiful!
Throughout the years I have had random animal obsessions....so I know a LOT about axolotls!! Haha, here is a website on their care if you want!~
http://www.axolotl.org/index.htm

It's excellent information there- better than any other!!
Congrats on your new babies. They are stunning! The darker one is very exotic looking. The light one looks very....babyish I guess! Hahaa! I suppose I'll have a tank full of them one day ;D

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

Yes they are divided for now until I do more research. They are so fun, I amhappy about my impulse buy. Surprised it wasn't a bunch of Betta's that day haha.

Thanks for the link, I need all the information I can get. I'll have to check it out before bed.
