Yes, I was aware of the swallowing issue. The pebbles are pretty big. When I first got my axolotl, they were much, much too big for him to even think about getting in his mouth. He's grown quite a bit at this point but they're still, for the most part, too big for him to fit in his mouth, but that won't be the case forever, so...
I DO need a substrate of some kind, don't I? If so, what kind would you recommend replacing the pebbles with and do I need to do anything special before removing the pebbles?
Like I said, I started out feeding him frozen bloodworms, but I switched to ReptoMin pellets about two months ago or so. The pellets float and I feed him by hand so there's very little, if any, uneaten food that ends up in the tank.
What live plants would you suggest? One end of the tank is near a window. I usually keep the window covered because I read that axolotls don't care for a lot of sunlight, but I could open it to let some sunlight in for the plants.
