Axolotls are knobs.
A blog for my axolotls: photos, updates, feelings, everything.
As well as information, advice and useful tips about axolotl care and breeding. Unless otherwise stated, all content belongs to me.
I'm a breeder from New Zealand, and am always happy to answer your questions, or set-up connections with other NZer's in the business.

Aquarium, hides/ shade providing decorations, a filter with a changeable output, axolotl food (worms!), water treater (dechlorinator, removal of metals), and some utensil for cleaning out poop. Pretty much all you need!
They seeeem okay at first glance. I’ve had no experience with them though, but maybe one of my followers has? When I am free, I’ll go through the website and have a look
Embryhallowed and circleofwitchess won the albino photo contest! I couldn’t pick, the two were nice and different, so both are being used. I haven’t made any sort of link to you guys yet, but I will very soon! Thanks :)
Anyone know of a website that sells axolotl’s and doesn’t cost a fortune for shipping? I have one axolotl, and just read that it is shitty to have just one, and that they need another axolotl in their tank? please let me know.
That isn’t true. Axolotls are not social creatures. It’s so much more fun to have two, but one is happy enough as well.
That’s what I thought, but I don’t really know enough about that. I only know they don’t produce the thyroid chemical thing (TSH) (Same as me!) which can be found in iodine, but it is probably larger quantities of iodine that affect them. It is better to be safe than sorry, I guess. It’s hard to know, so many different products out there.
I can’t really answer that sorry, I don’t know much about water treatments. I do know that most treatments such as algae-removal or pH buffers are not suitable for axolotls. The only treatment you should ever add to the water is to remove chloramine etc, this new one is probably fine, but I can’t guarantee it sorry.
