Hi,
Congrats on your axolotl :-)
Some advice -

A chiller will be needed if the water temps get above 73-75 degrees. 60-65 is ideal temp range.
Please remove all stones that are smaller than the axolotl's head. Also, frequent water changes (weekly at a minimum), are essential to health. The water looks a bit cloudy... and that could indicate high ammonia which can be very dangerous. I recommend a good liquid test kit so you can more easily monitor the water quality.
