Tips for Getting Your New Axolotl

Our adorable axolotls are ready to go to their forever homes. Here are some tips for before and after you buy an axolotl online:

Tank Cycling

It is highly recommended to ensure your axolotl will have a cycled aquarium to live in. This helps ensure safe water parameters. You can cycle a fish tank yourself using liquid ammonia, or you can buy a pre-cycled filter online (sponge filters are great). There are many great guides online on how to cycle a fish tank yourself if you choose to do that instead. Please note that this method can take several weeks. If you don’t cycle your tank first, it is recommended to perform daily water changes until your filter matures to remove waste and uneaten food. Once your tank is cycled it greatly reduces the water changes required.

Feeding

They have been eating high quality pellets and frozen bloodworms in our care. These worm cubes are sold at most pet stores and are very easy to feed. Worms are the most nutritious food you can feed your lotl and help promote big gills and good growth. Many people find feeding their axies using tongs is an easy method.

Cool water

Mexican water dragons experience stress in water that is too warm. They cannot live at tropical temperatures and need cool water. The recommended range is between 55-68 degrees F. The use of an aquarium fan can help to keep the water from overheating.

Tank size

A 10-20 gallon tank is a good size for an adult axolotl. Please don’t fill it all the way up to the brim without a lid as they can jump. If you don’t have a lid then you can fill it to 3″ below the waterline.
