All About How to Care for an Axolotl

Do you want to know how to care for an axolotl? The creator of this video will show you an axolotl care guide detailing the housing, filtering, and feeding of the axolotls.

You always have to make sure you do your research before acquiring any type of new pet and here you can find all the information you need on how to care for an axolotl.

The axolotl is one of those animals, to say the least, curious because of its appearance, very similar to a fish, but with legs. It really is a kind of aquatic salamander and is usually solitary, which can be active at any time of the day.

We are sure that this video can be of great help to you so that you can take care of an axolotl correctly.

Configure Your Axolotl Tank

Accommodation

To house a single axolotl they will require a minimum tank size of 60cm long (standard 2ft tank) plus 30cm more for each axolotl you add to your tank, ie 90cm for 2 axolotls.

It is best to keep the axolotl solitary, but if you want to keep multiple axolotls in the same tank, they will need to be of the same sex (males will breed with females and stress them).

Inside the tank

The aquarium should be bare bottom, that is, without substrate, or you can use a layer of fine sand. Normal aquarium gravel or pebbles are not suitable for axolotls as they will ingest them and cause internal compaction problems.

Rocks and logs can be used inside the tank as hiding places and caves. Live plants can be used, but they must be strong and well planted.

Wellness

Axolotls should be kept in daylight for 10 to 12 hours a day, with adequate shelter. Young axolotls require more oxygen, so an air pump must be provided. As they mature, their metabolism slows down and their need for oxygen decreases.
