    Its a larval stage of some type of newt
    But

    how many per xx gallon/s
    Lots of snakes and lizards
    1 Golden Pearl Flowerhorn.
    1 18" Nano reef.

    They grow to over a foot long if they can, so it'd be big.
    The best idea of numbers in a tank I've seen in the LFS's is 2 axy's of approximately 6 inches in a four foot tank.
    Currently: Spotted Blue-eyes, two species of Australian shrimp, Ornate Rainbowfish, Guppies, Corydoras, goldfish.

    My old Axoltyl book from 1981 says:
    "Tank should have a depth of at least 25cm. Length 100cm, width 50cm.
    6 axoltyls can be housed comfortably in such a tank"

    Tank size depends on how many you want. As with fish, bigger is always better. There can be problems with them in groups though because they can end up biting eachother and ripping gills, arms, and chunks of tail off (but these will all grow back). My three are in a 20 long for now. At up to a foot they can get quite large though. They naturally stay larval their whole life, so they aren't just a larval form of a newt, they just are larval. Very rarely one will metamorphosize, but it is still an axolotl. Are you thinking about getting some?

    I currently have one with my mother bought me he is about 20cm lonh, but i was hoping to build an outdoor pond for them under my window and i have a restricting of 60cm deep and 210cm long of digging space for a pond and about oh say 30cm - 40cm high i plan to make a cement pond for them, and since they rather like cold weather they should be fine outside in the shade where it doesnt get too hot and not too cold

    How hot will the water get out there? They really shouldn't be above 72F.

    My book really advocates giving them swimming room.
    And amazingly yes, damaged bits of axylotl will grow back!
