I actually dont have any axanthic 'lotls, so I cant answer your question, BUT I would be hesitant if I were you, especially if you are new to Axolotl care; axanthicism is the inability to produce pteridines (the yellow\orange pigmentation) and pteridines play a role in the immune system, so they have an even lower survival rate than other morphs
