    Latley there has abeen a demand at the local fish stores for Axolotls
    People, only teenagers i know of
    Have found a way to metamorphis Axolotls without the injection of drugs
    Apprently

    The way to do it is:

    get a tank with a large surface mass,

    lower the water till its just above the axolotl's "dorsal fin" (the fin type thing that connects to the tail ontop)

    lay the gravel in, You create some area above water so they may go on land, and others so they may be completely submersed only just though

    you feed them as you would normally, only adding crickets to roam on the above land

    have no airation in the water,

    it takes a few weeks apprently, but they do metamorphis i have only seen one fully metamorphosed axolotl in real life so far, But apprently, the low water oxygen, and food available on land tricks the axolotls into metamorphising to adapt to live in the better aobve water conditions
    but yes, thought i should let you know

    When it metamorphasizes it is known as the Mexican Salamander and only lives several years.

    Full3R, that's exactly what my old 1981 book describes as a way to get them to metamorphosise (if you want them to).
    Currently: Spotted Blue-eyes, two species of Australian shrimp, Ornate Rainbowfish, Guppies, Corydoras, goldfish.

    For a species that is supposed to never metamorphosize, I doubt it is good for them. If you want a large terrestrial salamander, get a fire.

    Might be fire salamanders. Spotted salamanders are native around me, but they do not seem to be as popular in the hobby as fire salamanders.
