Hi !
My name's André, im from portugal, and i've just started learning about axolotls... Here in portugal axolotls are not that famous lol actually... I dont know anyone who had ever heard anything about them.. no one knows what they are...

My sister works in an aquarium and I asked her to get me 2 axies... The thing is, they're still small, they're babies, and I was wondering if there is any problem, any cautions I should have while bringing them, at what size can I bring them, etc... :P

Srry about the bad english... =P Thx 4 reading

Hello Andre

I recently got myself 3 baby axies. I got them from my local pet store which is located about 5 minutes away. When i got them home and the tank set up and everythin i noticed (as a normal thing) that the axies where a little bit streessed due to the move. But after a while they got used to it and are happily enjpying their new home.

Im not sure if they will do such a small order but you could try Involvement Packaging on 01386554441 they have air tight bucket type packaging that would be good for sending of axolotls

Just putting them in a plastic bag and putting that bag inside a polystyrene box should be fine.

Eric's suggestion is just fine, just make sure to tie the bag and trap plenty of air inside too.

Remember to transfer them to a cycled aquarium with no other inmates.

Best of Luck Andre
