I'm a vet student in Edinburgh just finishing my first year and am looking at keeping an axolotl in the flat for the next four or five years in uni (and obviously then move it back home when I finish). I'm just researching about axolotls and planning what to get for it in terms of food and housing. So far I've decided on this tank: AquaEl Econoline 70 | Aquarium Supplies
Would you say that that is suitable for a single axolotl? I am not sure what type of filter is going to come with it, but while cycling the tank I can figure out ways to make the flow reduced.
I plan on using a sand substrate and adding a pipe tunnel and make some caves for it as well as some low light plants.
At the moment, I am not sure which room I'm having in the flat next year but I'll find out in August and can then plan where to put it. The current tenants have some goldfish on a windowsill and I was thinking that perhaps this is suitable if I cover the back, sides and top to prevent too much light getting in?
