So....I'm seriously debating a change of setup in my tentative 29 gallon. Whereas before I wanted the shrimp, bumblebee goby and Ember Tetra's.....there's a friggin' adorable 8 inch axolotl at my PetCo right now. He's been there just over a month I believe and the Aquatics Specialist is actually taking great care of him, I talked with her a few times now and she says I'm the only one who actually knows anything about them which is awesome. I helped her out a bit, she thought that they would come out of the water so he's in only half water and has some rocks sticking out so he could climb. She didn't realize they were one of the few "salamader's" that are fully aquatic.
So I'm seriously debating getting him, I know this is a serious commitment as they can live up to 10 year's but ever since I saw someone, I don't remember whose, journal with the baby axolotl's, I've wanted one! They are just the cutest things ever! And I'd totally name him Toothless just because he looks like him!
I still have lots of research to be doing if I do decide this but I know he's there, I'm the only one she said that has put serious thought into getting him. People always think he's cute but then they look at his price tag (only 20.98 which isn't terrible at all!) and they shy away. So if he's still there by the time I have everything set up....I'm seriously debating it!
