Default Meet Atlas

Hello-

Just wanted to do an introduction of myself and my one current Axolotl, Atlas. My name is Abbey, I'm a college student. Atlas is a really great guy and he has a wonderful personality. Loves people, and will swim over and greet you and loves when you look at him. I love how he will sit in my hand when I feed him. Such a sweetie. :) Obviously not camera shy, haha.

We did a little photoshoot today. Excuse the horrible quality photos...they were taken on my cell phone. :) Also, the forum uploader has stretched the photos...click them to get a better idea of what he actually looks like.

Hope you enjoyed the photos. I'd love to see your axelotls! I'm in the process of transferring him to a 44 gallon tank that is currently cycling. I just cleaned his tank after the photos were taken. *The little pellets in some of the photos were uneaten food and were removed right away.

Hello, welcome to this forum! You have a very adorable axolotl there (: How long have you had him? My axolotl's name is Onyx, he also likes to sit in my hand and greet me when I enter the room! He's not quite an adult, but he's getting there :3 I'm going to be moving him to a 55 gallon tank once we move and I also have three gfp golden axolotls on the way! I don't have any good current pictures of him, but I'll post a little "timeline" type thing.

(Dont mind his pink tail, I think it was caused by stress from his loud, but temporary filter)

What a cutie! These are my guys, Josť and Carlos! Josť is about two and Carlos is maybe 8 months-ish. Hoping to get some more! Are you thinking about getting him a buddy in the 44 gallon?

Jose and Carlos are the cutest little guys ever. :) Atlas will for sure have a buddy in his new tank! :)

welcome! atlas is very cute!! I love a good personality like his!(I think it comes from us loving them a lot) I now have four of them I just got two this week and the are barely two inches long. this first picture is of my first two, Erebus is on the left and Ceto is on the right.

Welcome to the forum! You've got a handsome guy there. c:

My axolotl's name is Monster (temporarily; I have no idea what his gender really is!).
He's a vicious little bugger sometimes. He likes to sit in my hand, but whenever he does he also seems to enjoy nipping at my fingers and palm. But he's so adorable, I just let him get away with it.
