Not a fish... But Axolotl!!

I got an Axolotl for my brthday, and moved him/her into the thirty gallon after rehoming the goldfish. It is so neat watching this kid!!



This is the only picture i have of it so far, this was taken in a ten gallon that i was splitting for my bettas (but hadnt put the heater in yet) so he stayed in there over night while i cleaned the thirty gallon tank for him.

I named him Toothless... X3 It has been done, i know, but i dont care. It is just too cute!!!

So everyone, meet Toothless, my wee baby axolotl! :3

They do just fine in a ten gallon tank. :) you should totally get one because they don't need a heater or anything. Lol!

I thought the adults would need like a 50 gal or something? Anyways, my house is too warm for them. I have to use a fan to keep my goldfish tank under 80F in the summer. When I move to a cooler area I'm going to have a salamander room in the basement. ^-^

Axolotls only need 20 gallons as adults, they turn into lumps when theyre older :P


Congrats!
I have three axolotls myself, yours is a very pretty wildtype it looks like ;)

I thought they had front legs? He just has stumps.. is it cause he's a baby?

I've also heard that on extremely rare occasions it can actually turn into a full on salamander o-o Probably doesn't happen in an aquarium where there is no chance to go on land though.. I could be wrong also :p
