  1. Default Axolotl, would it suit my tank?

    0 Not allowed!

    So I have decided to make my new tank a coldwater setup... The tank is about 20-25gals and its filtered by a sponge filter. The sponges are already cycled and are currently sitting in my other tank, will transfer them soon.

    Id like to get a axolotl but i have a few questions and concerns...

    1) Would it be ok to have no substrate? from what i know they can be a little messy so id like to have it bare bottom so i can hover up every speck of dirt once a week.

    2) Considering they are messy would a sponge filter be ok? 80% water change once a week and im pretty good with not overfeeding (will probably only feed it 3 times a week). I also intend on planting it.

    Decided against a Axolotl and set the tank up for a newt... Gonna add some substrate next week. Still doin research on newts.

    I was always under the impression that newts didn't live in full water habitats like that. I always thought they just lived in damp areas. I mean, I've found newts in grassy fields under fallen logs and under big rocks near no water. Unless that is just something other than a newt?

    Juvenile newts live on land. Adults are mostly aquatic. If you're finding them far from water, they're probably salamanders.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    Ah, alright, I get newts and salamanders confused constantly. Thanks for the clarification.

    I know how to sign the word newt (random fact). Anyway, it'll be nice to see this tank with the newt in it.

    Went on a New/Salamander forum and got loads of advice.

    The setup has changed alot and will hopefully house an Axolotl next week !!
