Fantaxies is a small axolotl business located in the heart of Colorado. It stays quite cool most of the year here, and is the perfect place for raising and housing these incredible animals. Our interest in the aquarium hobby began more than 20 years ago, and since delving into the world of axolotl rearing and husbandry with our first batch of eggs, we haven’t looked back.

We have high standards for the quality and treatment of the animals we are privileged to have in our care. As long as your axolotl is in our care, our goal is to be an Axolotl Paradise for them. Our axolotls are not housed in deli cups in solitary confinement with nothing but water and hardly any room to turn around. Instead, our animals are given lots of room to move and swim, as well as the opportunity to interact with an engaging environment. Our spacious setups are bare-bottom, gently filtered and equipped with plenty of hides and lots of soft silk plants to climb around and swim through. Water quality is carefully monitored and maintained. And, of course, they have as much high quality food as they want to eat all day long. We prioritize the happiness of our animals and go above and beyond to ensure they aren’t simply alive and free from stress, but totally pampered and thriving! We strive to go above and beyond in all that we do, both for our animals and our customers.

When you purchase from us, you can feel confident knowing we stand behind you with a 100% live arrival guarantee and only healthy animals. We take individual photos of many of our animals for our shop so you can have a personalized buying experience. We also love helping with any axolotl-related questions new owners often have when it comes to picking out and caring for their new pet. And we stand by our customers, both before and after their purchase. Our goal is to offer high quality, USA-bred and lovingly raised axolotls to meet the needs of our ever-growing customer base. We are not a large operation, and we focus on offering a small number of high quality axolotls with a diverse genetic background raised in small numbers. Our tanks are tenderly nurtured on a daily basis, and the wants of each animal attended to carefully.

Thank you for visiting! Check back often for new stock, and feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. 🙂
