What are the ideal conditions for other water qualities? nitrates, salinity, chlorine, etc. Is it the same as a freshwater fish tank or brackish?

Default Re: Best water condition for axolotl

Ammonia, nitrites, chlorine, should all be zero. Nitrates should be under 40. Salinitiy should be zero. Amphibians are not tolerant of salt. Hardness will vary depending on species, but most prefer hard water.
