Question Lonely axolotl

Hello everyone!

I am in need of some guidance. I have a male axolotl at the minute who is about 5-6inches long and am looking to get him a friend. However I don't know if this is a good idea as I've heard that one can attack the other if it is two males. I don't want a female as I don't want them to breed. What is the best way to introduce a new axolotl to the one I already have?

Thank you!!

2 males together will be fine. I have 7 together in one tank - no problems.

You can have multiple axolotl's in a tank. I would highly recommend that they are the same size and you should have no problems. Make sure they are well fed and that will keep them from nipping one another.
