Captive bred juvenile axolotl, also known as neotenic salamander or the Mexican walking fish – this fully aquatic amphibian are native to the caves of Mexico. These masters of regeneration are being studied in science for this amazing ability. Axolotl are a cool water species doing best in a 20 gallon long aquarium. They need aquarium temperatures to be between 59-65 °F. . They are opportunistic feeders eating anything they can catch – including fish (we recommend keeping them solo with no tank mates). We feed our specimens frozen blood worms and the occasional insect.
Please know your local amphibian laws in regards to keeping this species.
