The axolotl, also known as the Mexican walking fish, is a fascinating aquatic creature belonging to the Ambystoma mexicanum species. The pink leucistic axolotl is a color variant of this species, characterised by its pale pink or almost white skin and typically pink eyes. Leucism is a genetic condition resulting in reduced pigmentation, which gives these axolotls their unique appearance.

Axolotls are unique and fascinating creatures that make great pets. These aquatic creatures are a type of salamander that never fully develops into its adult form, instead, it remains in its larval state throughout its life. Here are some tips on how to keep axolotls as pets.

  1. Tank Setup: Axolotls require a spacious aquarium with a minimum size of 100 gallons. The aquarium should be filled with freshwater and kept at a temperature between 60°F to 68°F. You will also need to add a filter to maintain the water quality, and decorations such as rocks, plants, and hiding spots for your axolotl to explore and feel secure.
  2. Feeding: Axolotls are carnivorous and require a protein-rich diet. They can be fed a variety of foods such as live or frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, earthworms, and pellets. Feeding them twice a day is recommended, and you should avoid overfeeding as it can lead to health issues.
  3. Maintenance: Regular maintenance of the tank is necessary for the health of your axolotl. You should perform partial water changes every week to maintain water quality and remove any uneaten food or waste. The filter should be cleaned monthly to prevent clogging.
  4. Handling: Axolotls are delicate creatures and should be handled with care. You should avoid touching them unless necessary and always wet your hands before handling them to prevent damage to their skin. Also, never pick them up by their tail as it can cause injury.
  5. Health: Watch out for signs of illness in your axolotl, such as lethargy, loss of appetite, and abnormal behaviour.

In conclusion, keeping axolotls as pets can be a rewarding experience, but it requires proper care and attention to maintain their health and well-being. By following these tips, you can ensure that your axolotl thrives in its new home.

Answer: If you are thinking of keeping tropical fish, you need to know about the following main things: Size of your aquarium Firstly decide how much space you have for your new fish tank. Always go as big as you can fit, the bigger the better with fish keeping. Deciding what to fish to keep This will depend on the size of your aquarium. Research how big a fish is and will grow to. Small community to medium sized community set-ups are best to start with, unless you’re looking to create a biotope or species tank. Cycling your aquarium This is a very important part of keeping your cold water or tropical aquarium. Your filter is just a sponge and is no different than your washing-up sponge…until it’s “cycled” and loaded with beneficial bacteria. Maintaining your aquarium You should clean your tank on a weekly basis. A small 10-20% water change will help remove any build up of waste. Siphon your substrate and clean the glass, this will keep your tank nice and clean for your fish.


Answer: Yes, tropical fish will require a heater. A heater ensures the temperature stays steady during the course of the day. Generally, 25°C is the optimum temperature to keep most tropical fish, this is similar to what they are used to in their natural habitat.


Answer: The equipment you will need when it comes to caring for tropical fish include: A suitable fish tank Aquarium lighting Substrates and aquarium plants to help create a healthy ecosystem A filter system to keep your water clean and clear An aquarium heater A thermometer to keep to checks that the temperature is stable Aquarium test kits to check pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels Cleaning tools


Answer: In general, most tropical fish thrive on one or two feedings per day. You’ll need to adjust the quantity of food according to the size and quantity of fish in your tank. If your aquarium is new and you have just added your first fish, feed every other day and count the amount of food you are adding. A “pinch” is not accurate enough and may lead to overfeeding your fish.
