Number of Axolotl for this Aquamaxx tank
 
Hello,

I'm going to be a new Axolotl owner and have bought my tank and other equipment to cycle before for one.

I just purchased this tank
https://www.marinedepot.com/AquaMaxx...NCNTTT-vi.html

Here are the specs:
Dimensions L x W x H: 35.5" x 11.9" x 11.9"
Volume: 22 Gallons
Glass Thickness: 8mm

I was wondering if I can keep two in this?

It's 22 gallons so is only okay for one axolotl. If you want 2 then you'll need to get a 30 gallon :)

I agree with Hayley. Or get the largest tank you're able to afford and keep just in case you want to get more axxies.

A note when getting a new tank for an axolotl, it's not the amount of gallons , it's the foot print of the tank. A shallow wider tank is better than narrower taller tank.

@KingFisher

okay sounds good! This tank is a long tank of 36'' so I was wondering with that length it would have been possible for 2 but getting 1 is good enough for me :)

You might be fine for 2. I have a 38" x 18" x 18", 50 gallons and I have 2. Remember they can get up to 12" long.

two axolotls in a 20 long will be fine if you have good biological filtration, balance the tank, keep cool, and don't overfeed. The basic rule I go by is 10 gallons minimum per axolotl
