Hello all, I am new to axolotl care and I currently own two. I purchased one 2 months ago and he is 4 months, and about 3.5 inches. I recently purchased another younger one, only about 1.5-2 inches, significantly smaller! They are currently seperate. Would they be ok to be put together?

Re: Size Difference
At that size and the fact one is almost twice the size, I would say no. Any part of the small one that will fit in the bigger ones mouth will be ripped off and eaten potentially. If the tank is big enough you could combine them but keep a divider in place.

Add to my rep if you find anything I have said useful.
