    Ok so this is the supplies that they will need. Tell me if I missed something.

    -axolotl I would like to get a male. Where would be the best place to get him?
    -ten gallon I read on some sites that you only have to fill the water so that it is over his head but on other sites that you should fill it all the way. Which is better?
    -homemade mesh lid
    -a few plastic plants and a large terra-cotta pot as his hiding place. I'm not going to put gravel
    -Filter. Should I get one meant for a smaller tank so that my axolotl does not get sucked up?
    -Food. I'm going to feed him axolotl pellets. What is the best kind and where can I find it?

    Anything else?

    Of course!! I also reccomend and for lots of good information!

    They have been really easy for me to keep, especially as they become full grown. You need a minimum of ten gallons for a single adult (they can get pretty big), and they are fairly lazy, so there is that as well. I feed mine white cloud minnows, earthworms, and supplimented it all with shrimp pellets and sinking newt food.

    Hello Gizmo! I saw that you had axolotls. I was thinking about getting one. Could you tell me some basic things about them like housing, feeding, etc? Thanks!!!!
