Anyone keep Mexican walking fish? AKA axolotls?
Was just trying to gather some info and see if anyone has kept them before...
Will they fit in a 10 gallon? Do they dig? What's the minimum tank size for breeding?
a ten would be cool for 1 ...they tend to roam the bottom when foraging for foods particularly when they have learned worms and the like sink but i have had no issues with forcable digging...they wont purposly harm your plants....i have yet to breed them but i know someone who has i will try to ask about it ...i do remember him saying cool temps and the babys canibalizing and limb biteing during feeding frenzies...ADIOS...
You really need a 3ft tank min for them. They get quite big. And they will eat small gravel, so larger pebbles are a must. They do fine in unheated water as long as it doesn't get ultra cold. They like live foods - they will eat small fish. :)

That is one of the coolest fish I've ever seen!! Thank god I don't have room to set up another large tank LOL.
there gills are extremely sensitive. a water problem would be devastating to them
I read about their cannibalising when young. Luckily they can regenerate a limb in 10 weeks...
So.. I've read multiple places that a 10 is good enough for 1.. Is that wrong?
Whats the minimum size for breeding?
I got some eggs 20 days ago and they just hatched, you can follow the full development of them via my blog
if you only have one a 10gal should be fine. calci-sand would be ok to use as a substrate also because it won't harm them if they eat it while feeding (actually, it could help them get the right dose of calcium in their diet)
