They're here, They're Finally Here!

Aristotle my first albino, axolotl.

What your looking at is front row pictures of my new fish!
Today i managed to pick up 2 Axolotls at an aquarium!
They were 32$ Each and are 1.5 and 1 month old, respectively.
I am to believe that Ari is an Axanthic Axolotl. Im not sure on the genders of both of them though. I also bought a thermomintor to test water temperature, Axolotls (In the summer) need to be kept at a constant temperature ranging from 16-20 degrees Celsius.
With water bottles frozen to ice, i keep placing bottles in to thaw out into the water and reduce the temperature. They both seem extremely playful and they Snap the food right out of your hand. as the week goes on i wish to handle them a little more and teach them fully how to Snap the food so they can learn how to eat live earth worms i place in the tank. I also bought a plant for $4.50 and a huge log to hide in for 20$
 Axolotls have poor eyesight and so there getting use to there new eyesight. They're also very excited they are in a new, much bigger, gravel infested. Caves and places to hide ridden, Tank. Will post more good pictures as i see them, until then guys.

  20. Your little Axolotls are awesome. I never knew you could buy them before I read your blog. I don't believe I've ever seen any for sale in Alaska. I would love to buy one or two to take care of.

    I currently have 3 hermit crabs that I've been taking care of for the past 5 years.

  21. Hey that's great news, I'm glad you finally got them.

    Were these the mail order ones you were talking about? Or are they coming later?

    Or am I completely misinformed?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha, No.
    Impossible to get fish in the mail.
    I phrased my countdown incorectly
    I said "They come in 3 days" As in, in 3 days im going to the aquarium. See, i can only go on weekends. I already picked out a name for the fish so i said (Ari comes in 3 days) ect.
