    Hey!

    So from my past experience and a bit of research I do not think a neons tail will grow back (assuming the chunk missing is its tail) If the chunk missing is its actual peice of the body that could be a natural deformity, or a wound. If its a deformity than you can't do anything about it. If its a wound than I would carefully monitor it, because it could easily get infected and spread to the other fish.

    40 is a little low... I wouldn't let the water drop below 60 on average, any more below that and their metabolism slows way down and they may now eat. Of the water is 40 in your basement you will need an adjustable heater to bring it up to at least 65. :)

    And my babies haven't even hatched, so no worries. Lol

    I don't know of any breeders in your area, though mine just mated and had eggs, so I could sell you some once they were big enough?

    Considering they go in the fridge when being medicated, they can handle, and even prefer, cold water. It is warm water you have to worry about as that can stress and kill them.

    They prefer low to medium lighting, so being in the dark for long periods won't bother them at all. Lol

    I we'd mine white cloud mountain minnows and rosey red minnows, I imagine they could eat talapia, as it is very lean, but I have only ever fed mine live fish.

    They do stay under water their whole lives as well. :) I don't mind answering the questions either! Love talking about them.

    It is really almost impossible to sex them until they are fully mature... Until last night I thought both of mine were female. Lol! Best place to get them is from a breeder, or a very good pet shop.

    A ten gallon is a great home for one adult, and I fill my tank to the top, they like to swim and often will float around.

    They do best with very large river stones (bigger than their heads so they can't swallow them), a bare bottom, or sand. Never anything else.

    While Axolotl pellets are great, don't forget to suppliment with earthworms, blood worms, and fish (live or finely chopped lean meat fish).

    And yes, they do need an air pump. Lol they have gills.

    Of course!! I also reccomend Caudata.org and Axolotl.org 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.
