Water dog?
 
So I found a new FW LFS today and saw some water dog salamanders in a tank. Does anyone know anything about these? What are the minimum tank requirements? I am not sure where to post this so if it is posted in the wrong place I apologize.

I know nothing about them either, but my LFS has them too. They are so darn cute!!

The common name "water dog" can refer to various creatures, from giant salamander larvae, hellbenders, mudpuppies...some of which get very large (2-3 feet). I would suggest you google water dog and find a photo of what the store has, then research that species.

P.S. None of these are true fish, so this thread should probably be in Vivariums? Kym, what say you?

It is probably an Axolotl

Whoa, what a face! Definitely not what I was picturing. I was thinking the warm and fuzzy face of a salamander or newt. That Axolotl is scary looking, lol.

I got some eggs 20 days ago and they just hatched, you can follow the full development of them via my blog
