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.

I don’t sorry, as I’m not in the US. Some of my followers may respond to this, but if not, search through the notes/replies on similar questions, it has been answered before. They are super easy to care for, but getting them to start eating can be a bit difficult, depending on what they’ve been eating and how they’ve been fed previously, but once you figure out what’s good for them, it’s easy.
Day dreaming about trips to America to visit friends, and exporting some GFP and copper axolotls….god, I would get so rich if I had some of those!! Damn NZ’s limited selection.
I just moved my axolotl photos folder to my desktop for easy access, and there are 1700 pictures! I deleted soooo many last year, this is becoming a problem. I blame you followers for encouraging me!
I bought the domain name www.sillyaxolotls.com so hopefully in the next few weeks I get a website up and running! I don’t know what it’ll be like. My man is making it for me, and he’s still a beginner, so nothing too fancy yet. But maybe one day it’ll be a blog-styled one, with information tabs, and a simple forum for help and questions! We’ll see.
Axolotls can get pretty big, and use the floor more than any height in a tank. So you want one that is long, but doesn’t have to be high as well. I would suggest 70cms length at least, with about 30-40cm width. 30cm height is good, but you can go anything over this, which can be safer as they freak out and might launch themselves into the roof or onto the floor. Axies can be found sitting in funny places, so having the extra height gives them more chances to do this, but of course, not necessary!
I don’t know what this is in litres or gallons, sorry!
